JAMES PYNE (PINE) OF HEMPSTEAD, LONG ISLAND, 
AND SOME OF HIS DESCENDANTS. 



By John B. Pine. 



James Pyne who settled in Hempstead during the first half 
of the seventeenth century appears to have been the first of the 
name to make a permanent home in this country, though one 
Thomas Pyne was admitted a freeman of the Colony of Massa- 
chusetts Bay as early as 1635, and "Thomas Pines" fought in 
the French and Indian Wars. 

The name of James Pyne, or " Pine " as it was afterwards 
spelled, is found in the Town Records of Stamford, Connecticut, 
which was settled in the summer of 1641, by a " companie of 
Wethersfield (Mass.) men," under a grant from the New Haven 
Colony. He does not seem to have been of this " companie " but 
to have followed them very soon, as he received an allotment 
from the town of the usual house lot and wood lot, Dec. 7, 1641. 
When he came to Massachusetts Bay, or by what vessel is not 
known, nor is anything known definitely as to his ancestry, but 
there has long been a tradition among his descendants that 
he came from Devonshire, which, according to Sir William Pole, 
who wrote in 1590, had been "the long contynewed Dwellinge 
of the Family of Pyne." It seems very probable that he 
was the James Pyne, son of William and Mary Pyne, who was 
baptized in Woodbury, near Exeter, Devonshire, England, 
on June 4, 1608, and who married Edith Williams in St. Mary 
Magdalen, Taunton, an adjoining town in Somersetshire, in 
Sept., 1630.* This James Pyne continued to live in Wood- 
bury until 1640, when his mother Mary died, appointing him 
as her executor. His father had died in 1636, leaving con- 
siderable property, consisting mostly of horses, cattle and sheep, 
from which it is to be inferred that he was a yeoman. After

2 James Pyne {Pine) of Hefupstead, Long Is/and, [Jan., 

1640 the name disappears from the town records of Woodbury 
almost simultaneously with its appearance at Stamford, Con- 
necticut. The titles in the books mentioned in the will of James 
Pyne of Hempstead, show that his religi*ous sympathies were 
with the Puritans and suggest a reason for his coming to America 
His probable age tends to prove the identity, for on his death in 
1686, he left several grandchildren, and his oldest son was a man 
of mature years, so that he might very well have been 78 years 
of age, which would have been the age of Tames Pyne of Wood- 
bury in that year. 

Savage mentions a James Pyne who was in Hartford in 1647 
and refers to Trumbull's Colonial Records, from which it appears 
that at a General Court held in Hartford, May 24, 1647 (vol i, 
PP- 150, 15S), "James Pyne" was declared to have "forfeited his 
recognizance for non-appearance," and again on Oct. 29, 1647, 
James Pyne (was) bound in a recognizance in ^20, provided Pyne 
keepe good behaviour until the Court in May at Fayerfield and 
appear there." No record of the court held in May has been 
preserved, so the cause of Pyne's offending is not disclosed. 
During the time that he remained in Stamford, James Pyne 
seems to have taken no part in its affairs, which were in a rather 
disturbed condition, on account of the dissatisfaction of the 
townsmen with the limited franchise which they enjoyed under 
the New Haven Colony.* The Stamford men complained that 
the New Haven men made laws and laid the rates, and that they 
had no votes, no liberties and no justice, and, apparently in the 
hope of securing greater liberty, a number of families determined 
to remove to Long Island and to place themselves under the 
Dutch Government. In 1643, a few individuals from Hemel 
Hempstead, near London, had commenced a settlement on Long 
Island, and named it Hempstead, and thither in 1644, after 
buying a tract of land from the Indians, the Rev. Richard Denton, 
the minister of Stamford, and several others betook themselves! 
A charter for the Town was on Nov. 16, 1644, secured from the 
Governor and Council of New Netherlands, giving the settlers 
considerable municipal powers and the "right to exercise the 
reformed religion which they profess."f 

The name of James Pyne (or Pine) does not appear in the first 
allotment of town lands, but his non-appearance at Hartford in 
1647, upon his recognizance above mentioned, can very probably 
be explained by the fact that being unwilling to "keep good 
behaviour" by paying the taxes and conforming to the church 
discipline of the New Haven Colony, he had followed his towns- 
men to Long Island. It is certain that he moved there before 
1656, for on July 4, of that year, he joined with other inhabitants 
of Hempstead in a letter to Governor Stuyvesant, claiming that 
if they were compelled to pay tithes, the Government should 
reimburse them for injuries received from the Indians. From

1912.] and Some of His Descendants. 3 

this it must be inferred that he was a land owner at the time 
this letter was written, and in the following year, as the Town 
Records show, he received an allotment of thirty-one acres of 
meadow land. From this time his name appears frequently as 
owning land, and in a list of freeholders and the number of acres 
owned by each in 1685, contained in the Town Records, James 
Pyne is put down as owning 500 acres, that being the largest 
amount belonging to any individual. In 1664, "James Pine, an 
inhabitant of Hempstead was made a freeman of Connecticut," 
which indicates that he still owned land in Stamford and tends 
to identify him with the early settlers of that town.* 

In 1674, the Rev. Richard Denton having in the meantime 
returned to England, James Pine and others united in petitioning 
Governor Andros (as the father of the Commonwealth) "to instal 
such authority among them as may be a means under God for 
upholding and maintaining the ministry and worship of God 
among them, that his honor may be promoted and his sabbaths 
observed for the good of themselves and their posterity." Pre- 
viously to this, in 1671, the Town had at a public meeting con- 
tracted with Richard Charlton " to keep a Schoole and to instruct 
ye Children & Youth there to write and read," and also built a 
Presbyterian meeting house, and passed an ordinance compelling 
attendance at its services under severe penalties for non-atten- 
dance. Presumably, the applicatian to Governor Andros for a 
minister was successful, for in 1682 James Pine and three of his 
sons are included in a list of subscribers to the minister's salary. 
The ordinance just cited would seem to indicate that the founders 
of Hempstead had carried with them the rigid Puritanism of 
Massachusetts Bay and New Haven, but an evidence of somewhat 
greater liberality may perhaps be found in the fact that as early 
as 1668, they permitted a horse-race " not so much for ye divertise- 
ment of ye youth alone but for ye encouragement of ye breed of 
horses." 

On April 17, 1685, Governor Dongan granted a new Charter 
to the Town, and James Pine is named as one of the patentees. 
In the following year he died leaving a will, which is on record, 
as one of the earliest wills in Queen's County.f 

The will indicates that he was a man of considerable education 
and reading, as it mentions the books which he leaves to his 
children, rather an unusual legacy in those days, and they include 
" Mr. Hooker's Works," probably referring to the Laws of Eccles- 
iastical Polity (London, 1662); Peter Heilin's Cosviograpliy (Ox- 
ford, 1622); the works of Dr. William Sclater, a prominent 
theologian of the seventeenth century, the Ecclesiastical History 
in English, and Tlie Marrow of the Oracles of God, by Nicholas 
Bifield (London, 1660).

The will also distributes a large amount of land among the 
testator's children, and considerable personal property, quaintly- 
suggestive of the peculiar value then attached to the " longest 
gun or fowling piece," the " middle gun and the greatest iron 
pot;" the "middle best iron pot and the biggest bell metal skillet," 
set forth in detail, which is almost equivalent to an inventory of 
household effects. As he does not mention his wife, it must be 
assumed that she died before him, but he refers to the following 
children, viz.: — his eldest son John, and James, Nathaniel, Jona- 
than, Samuel; also two younger sons, William and Benjamin; 
also his daughters, Lea, Agnes, Sarah and Susan; his grand- 
daughter Mary, the daughter of his son John, and his "cosen, 
John Smith." 

From the frequent occurrence of the family name in the 
records of Hempstead and its vicinity, it is evident that de- 
scendants of the original settler continued to live there for more 
than a century and a half after his death, but his descendants 
are now widely scattered. It is probable that a very large pro- 
portion of those now in this country bearing the name of Pine, 
owe their origin to James Pine of Hempstead, and through him 
trace their ancestry to the Pynes of Devonshire, though the 
Devonshire family is represented in this country through several 
other lines. 

The destruction of church records, especially those of West- 
chester County, during the Revolution, has rendered it impossible 
to connect the various branches of the family with any degree of 
completeness, but some facts as to the earlier descendants of 
James Pine may be stated with certainty. 

John, the eldest son of James, in 1672, received a grant from 
the town of a "home lott by his father's . . . and privileg 
to keep half a dozen cattell in summer," and in 1686 he was 
authorized to set up a grist mill. In 1700 he served as Lieutenant 
in a company of infantry raised by Governor Bellemont, and in 
1703 he was chosen one of the first church wardens, repre- 
senting the Parish of Oyster Bay and Hempstead, subsequently 
incorporated as St. George's Church, Hempstead.* He died in 
the same year leaving considerable real estate, which he divided 
between his sons Daniel and John. His widow, Abigail, and his 
daughter Mary also survived him.f Daniel married Sarah Carle 
and proved himself a good citizen by serving as a Commissioner 
of Highways, and as a vestryman of St. George's, of which the 
Rev. Samuel Seabury was rector. He is described in Jones' 
History of Neiv York in the Revolutionary War (vol. ii, p. 39), 
as "a worthy loyal subject who during his life opposed the 
Rebellion in all its stages." He died during the war, leaving 
his farm to two of his nephews living at Fishkill, beyond the 
British lines, in consequence of which the estate was seized by 
the British and given to refugees.

John married Grace Carman and in 1758 sold his grist-mill 
(long- known as " Persell's Mill") to Herman (or Hendrick) 
Onderdonk, and moved with his family to Fishkilli on the Hudson, 
where they were among the first settlers, and where the Rev. 
Mr. Seabury had but a short time previously established Trinity 
Church. He evidently continued his occupation for by his will, 
proved Nov. 27, 1781, he devised his grist-mill to his sons Silvanus 
and Philip. To his oldest son, Joshua, he left his farm at Cow 
Neck (now Sands Point), Long Island, and to his daughter 
Abigail, wife of Nathan Bailey, personal property, including a 
silver tankard and teaspoons.* 

Joshua married Sarah de Milt of New York City, Jan. 26, 1751, 
and lived in Hempstead until shortly before the outbreak of the 
Revolution, when he removed to what is now the Bronx and 
engaged successfully in the flour business. But on the beginning 
of hostilities, he and his family were driven from their home by 
the British, and he removed to Fishkill, after having been im- 
prisoned for several months. During the war he owned a sloop 
by means of which he conveyed supplies to the American Army. 
His son John served as a Captain of Westchester County Guides 
in the American Army with honor and courage (Bolton's Histary 
of Westchester County, vol. i, p. 25). In 1785, Joshua Pine joined 
several other families in settling the town of Walton on the 
Delaware River in Delaware County, where he was a leading 
citizen and held various offices. f He died in 1802, leaving three 
sons, Peter, Joshua and Daniel, and two daughters, Sarah and 
Rachel. Of these, Joshua married Margaret Remsen, became 
Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, and represented the county 
in the Assembly in 1807. He is described as a man of more than 
ordinary integrity and business ability.^ Silvanus, the son of 

John of Fishkill, married Judith , and carried on his father's 

business as a miller until 1799, when he died, leaving Martha, 
Abigail, Thomas, Elizabeth and Nancy. § Philip married Phebe 
Howard of Dutchess County, Oct. 15, 1765. || He was a Trustee 
of Trinity Church, Fishkill, and was enrolled in the Second 
Regiment of Dutchess County Militia in the Revolution, About 
1790 he removed to Tompkins, Delaware County, where he died 
in 1818, leaving two sons, Daniel and Peter. The last named was 
a member of the Assembly in 1820, 1824 and 1831, and a Presi- 
dential Elector in 1828. He also left four daughters, Sarah 
Underwood, Betsy Butler, Martha Brown and Phebe Youmans.l 

James, the second son of the settler, was also a considerable 
land owner, and his name appears frequently in the town records.

6 James Pyne {Pine) of Hempstead, Long Island, [Jan., 

He was one of the building committee of St. George's Church in 
i734"~35. and joined in a petition for the incorporation of the 
church.* He seems to have left no children. 

Jonathan was one of the colony from Long Island which in 
1690, settled in eastern New Jersey. He held local offices and 
seems to have left a number of descendants, as many of the name 
appear in subsequent New Jersey records. f 

Samuel married Rachel Ellison and is mentioned as a land 
owner in 1685 in Thompson's History of Long Island, vol. ii, p. 17, 
and in the Genealogy of the Willis Family he is stated to have 
died leaving no children {B. & G. Record, vi, 103). 

William married and had a son James, who married Ann 
Bedell in St. George's Church on Nov. 23, 1753. Their children 
were Richard, William, David and Elias. William also left three 
daughters, Mary and Elizabeth, who married Joseph Hall, Jr., 
and his brother, and Sarah, who married Joshua Smith, J 

The descendants of Nathaniel and Benjamin have not been 
traced, but one of them appears to have had a son James who 
married Mary Brush of Huntington§ on March 24, 1735; and had 
a son James and two daughters, Mary and Esther. | This James 
appears to have been the one who moved to New Rochelle in 
1746 and purchased 156)4 acres of land on the Sheldrake River.l 
He was in 1762, one of the petitioners for a charter for the 
French Church, and subsequently was named as one of the 
incorporators of Trinity Church.** He died about 1783, leaving 
a will by which he devised his lands and mill at New Rochelle 
to his grandson James. He also left bequests to his son Samuel, 
living in King Street, Fairfield, to his daughters Elizabeth Willis 
and Mary Bonnet; to Phoebe and Hannah, daughters of his son 
John of Eastchester, and to Elizabeth and Mary, daughters of his 
son Micah, and to James, the son of James, of Rye.ff The last 
named died about 1757, leaving James, John, Benjamin and Smith. 
His wife was Phoebe Willis, a sister of Richard Willis. 

Many others of the name are mentioned in the records of 
Queens, Westchester, Dutchess, Greene and Ulster Counties, 
who are evidently descendants of James Pine of Hempstead, and 
as to whose connection there can be no doubt, though it cannot 
always be traced. Three brothers who are to be included among 
these descendants, James, Samuel and William Pine, settled in

Kingston, Poughkeepsie and Beekman, respectively. James Pine 
was born in 1768, and married (i) Margaret, daughter of Major 
Henry Schenck and Hannah Brett of Fishkill, and had children, 
William, Catherine, Robert Brett, Edward and Harriet, all of 
whom were baptized in Fishkill, as shown by the* church records; 
and Maria and Margaret, who were baptized in Kingston, as 
shown by like records. On the death of his first wife he married 
(about 181 1 ) Olive Walker, born Nov. 26, 1789; died 1876; by 
whom he had four children, George Washington, Laura, James 
and Ann Eliza. He died April 29, 1822. Samuel Pine who 
settled in Poughkeepsie, was born in 1775, and married Susan 
Storms. He died in 1842, leaving two sons, Perlee and Henry. 
The latter married his cousin Harriet, the daughter of James 
Pine, last mentioned. The third brother William appears to 
have served as a Captain in Col. Field's Dutchess County Regi- 
ment, in the Revolution, and to have died about 1823.* 

Besides those mentioned, several of the name served in the 
army during the Revolution, James and Benjamin Pine were 
captains, and William Pine a sergeant in the Hempstead Com- 
pany of Queens County Militia, of which David and Richard Pine 
were also members. (A''. Y. Documentary History, x-^^ \2>']). John 
Pine was enrolled in the Second Regiment of Westchester County, 
and Samuel Pine in the Third Regiment of the same county. 
Another John Pine was enrolled in the Fifth Dutchess County 
Regiment, and Philip and Robert Pine were enrolled in the 
Second Regiment of same county. (A^. K in the Revolution^ and 
Neiv York Archives, N. Y. Revolutionary Rolls, i, 147). 

Another and apparently different family of the same name 
lived at Pine's Ferry, Westchester County, during the Revolution. 
Stephen Pine was a loyalist, and it was at the bridge across the 
Croton River, which succeeded the ferry, and which was known 
as " Pine's Bridge," that Andr6 parted from his guide. Smith, on 
his way to New York shortly before his capture. The estate of 
Stephen Pine was forfeited and in 1783, he went to New Bruns- 
wick, and settled near the River St. John, where he died in 1786, 
leaving three sons, Henry, Alpheus and Stephen. f 

Another Pine of Tory tendencies was Samuel of Massa- 
chusetts, who is described as "one of the eighteen country 
gentlemen who were driven from their habitations to Boston, 
and an addresser of General Gage on his departure in 1775." 

The foregoing notes, however fragmentary, will at least 
preserve the name of one of the early settlers of Long Island, 
and render considerable material which has not heretofore been 
printed, accessible to some future descendant who may have 
the benefit of records as yet undiscovered and the disposition to 
pursue the writer's investigations.

Early Records of Salem, Washifi^^ton Coiintv, N. Y 



[Jan., 



EARLY RECORDS OF SALEM, WASHINGTON 
COUNTY, N. Y. 



Through the courtesy of Miss Harriet M. Williams of Salem, 
Washington County, N. Y., the Record is enabled to publish 
the following original lists of the very earliest settlers of that 
town. The fac-simile of the subscription list for building the 
first church* in that region is dated 1769, and is probably the 
earliest original document pertaining to the settlement of the 
town in existence. The assessment roll, dated 1794, containing 
the names of every holder of real or personal property in the 
town is valuable genealogically, as many of these people 
emigrated direct from the old country. The originals are in 
possession of Miss Williams, having been recently discovered 
among the papers of her great-grandfather, Gen. John Williams, 
and were generously loaned for publication in this magazine. 

James Turner, Hamilton McCollister and Joshua Conkey were 
the first settlers of Salem. They came from Pelham, Mass., 
about 1764, but not until 1765-7 was there any considerable 
settlement of the town; so that the 1769 list was made up of 
those who had but recently arrived. 

The assessment roll, dated twenty-five years later, containing 
the names of about 350 taxpayers, indicates rapid settlement of 
the town simultaneously by two colonies: one from New England 
and the other from the North of Ireland. 

The records are rendered more valuable from the fact that 
these early settlers, while possessing marked intelligence and 
culture, were very careless about preserving vital statistics. No 
records of births, baptisms, marriages or deaths were kept by 
the churches; at least the writer has been unable to discover 
any such records covering the first hundred years of the 
churches' existence there. tobias a. wright. 



"Assessment Roll of all the real and Personal Estate of the Freeholders 
and inhabitants of the Town of Salem in the County of Washington, taken and 
made out this 24th May, 1794.

body of Samuel Sturgis Thacher, son of Mr.

ruary 14th, 1741 (42), aged 3 mos. and 4 days." 
According to his gravestone, he was born Novem- 
ber loth, 1 741. 

-I-263 ix. Anthony, 2nd,° born June 28th, 1744; died Jan- 
uary 18th, 1806; married Elizabeth Taylor. 

In Goodspeed's Hill, West Burying Ground, Barnstable, lie 
buried the remains of Elisha^ Thacher and his wife Phebe ; stones 
mark their graves, thus inscribed: "In memory of Mr. Elisha 
Thacher who died December 6th, 1774, in the 76th year of his age." 

"In memory of Phebe, widow of Mr. Elisha Thacher ; she died 
March 12th, 1785, in ye 84th year of her age." 

The will of Elisha^ Thacher, dated June nth, 1770, proved 
January 20th, 1775, describes him as a yoeman, and mentions his 
son Anthony who receives carpenter and boat building tools ; chil- 
dren Elisha, Desire Taylor, Lucretia Davis, and wife Phebe. He 
had a shop and his homestead lot is defined. Inventory presented 
by Elisha" and Anthony® Thacher, December 9th, 1776, and another 
paper relating to the estate was presented by Anthony® Thacher, 
July 4th, 1785. 

Captain John Lothrop (father-in-law of Elisha^ Thacher) was 
born in Barnstable, February 9th, 1644; he married, first, at Ply- 
mouth, Mass., January 3rd, 167 1-2, to Mary (probably daugh- 
ter of James and Mary (Tilson) Cobb, of Scituate) ; she was born 
in Scituate, December 3rd, 1653. His name in the marriage record 
is given as Laythrope and she is called Mary Colsgain. He mar- 
ried, a second time, December 9th, 1695, Hannah ( ) Fuller, 

widow of Dr. John Fuller. John Lothrop died September i8th 
(or 27th), 1727, at II o'clock A. M., and he is recorded as having 
been 85 years old in the Barnstable Church Records. On Mr. Otis' 
authority, we know that he was a man of note among the seafaring 
3A

men of the coast in those early times, saihng as Captain in com- 
mand of his own vessel. 

In the New Haven, Conn, records i^s found this evidence of 
his occupation : 

"These certify I received on board ye Szvan, John Lothrop, 
master, 8 bbls. pork, 48 bushels wheat of Samuel Hejnmingway of 
New Haven, for use of Captain Elisha Hutchinson of Boston, and 
doe promise to deliver ye same on paying freight S*''* per barrel 
and 6'^ per bushel. 
"April ist, 1691. (sgd) Jo. Lothrop." 

John Lothrop's will (Book iv., p. 407, Barnstable Probate 
Records) is dated March 9th, 1726-7, and was proved February 
9th, 1727-8. It names as legatees his wife Hannah, his son John's 
son Joseph, the children of his daughter, Mary Howland, and those 
of his daughter, Elizabeth Lewis, and his sons Barnabas and Ben- 
jamin. His son Barnabas and his wife Hannah, executors. 

Hannah Lothrop's (widow of John) will bears date October 
7th, 1738 (Book v., p. 362) and was proved October 19th, 1738; 
she mentions as legatees son Benjamin, the heirs of John Fuller, 
deceased, grandson John Lothrop, daughter Reliance Prince, daugh- 
ter Bashua Webb and daughter Phebe Thacher. Executor, son-in- 
law Elisha Thacher. 

Hannah (widow of John) Lothrop was the second wife of Dr. 
John Fuller (son of Matthew Fuller), and had by him Bethia, born 
December , 1687; John, born October , 1689; and Re- 
liance, born September 8th, 1691. These names make the names 
in the will understandable.

86. Captain Jostaii^* Thacher (Deacon Josiah,* Hon. Col. John," 
Antonyr Rev. Peter^), born Yarmouth, Mass., July 7th, 1701 ; 
he resided at Yarmouth, Mass., and Norwalk, Conn.; he was 
a Sea Captain engaged in the coast trade, and a man of af- 
fairs in Norwalk; he died at Norwalk, Conn., August 22nd, 
1780, "Tuesday at 8 hours and 44 minutes in the morn- 
ing." He was buried, presumably, at East Norwalk, Conn., 
between the graves of his two wives; no stone marks his 
grave, but the space left between his wives' graves suggests 
his interment there. He married, first, at Norwalk, Conn, 
(according to Scllcck's Nonvalk), on February 17th, 1724, to 
Ann Burne (Burr, Bun or Bunce ; probably Burr, according 

to Allen's Thacher Genealogy, p. 42). She was born at on 

March 25th, 1699, and died at Norwalk, Conn., February 25th, 
1733-4, "between 9 and 10 at night, aged 34," and was buried

ond time, at Boston, Mass., by Rev. Sam'l Checkley, of the

to Mary (Greenleaf) Blinn (daughter of Rev. Daniel Green- 
leaf of Yarmouth and Boston, Mass., by his wife Elizabeth 
(Cooking) Greenleaf; and widow of James Blinn, whom she 
married March i6th, 1725). She was born at Cambridge, 
Mass., August 29th (or September 25th), 1706, and died at

Captain Josiah^ Thacher was a mariner in the coasting trade 
between Boston and Cape Cod and along ^Long Island Sound. He 
lived in Yarmouth, Mass., until about 1725 when he acquired land 
in Norwalk, Conn., from Alexander Ressiquie. The deed of this 
transfer of land is to be found in Norivalk Land Records, Vol. V., 
folio 285; it is dated December 22nd, 1725, but is recorded of date 
December 31st, 1724; and in said deed Josiah Thacher is described 
as being of "Yarmouth in Barnstable County in Province of Massa- 
chusetts Bay in New England." By this deed he acquired a house 
lot of three acres. The place of the first marriage of Josiah^ 
Thacher is not a matter of record, but Selleck, in his History of 
Norivalk, states that it took place in Norwalk, Conn. The maiden 
surname of his first wife is variously stated by dififerent authorities 
as being Burne, Burr, Bun, or Bunce. His family Bible and Free- 
nia)i's Cape Cod, however, specifically state that her maiden sur- 
name was Burne, and I have therefore so recorded it. Where his 
first wife lived at the time of her marriage or where she was born 
or who were her parents is not a matter of record. In the East 
Norwalk Cemetery there is a gravestone to her memory thus in- 
scribed : — "Here lyes buried the body of Mrs. Ann Thacher, wife 
to Mr. Josiah Thacher, aged 34 years and ii months. Died Feb- 
ruary ye 25th, 1733-4" (hence she was born March 25th, 1698-99). 
Alongside of this grave, with a space between sufficient for an- 
other grave, is the grave of Josiah^ Thacher's second wife, which 
grave is marked by a stone thus inscribed: — "In memory of Mrs. 
Mary Thacher, wife of Capt. Josiah Thacher, who departed this 
life April 6th, A. D. 1774, in her 68th year. 

Who follow here ye paths of truth 

Shall bloom in everlasting youth. 

Clad with new glories they shall shine 

In charms immortal and divine." 
Mary (Greenleaf) Blinn, second wife of Josiah' Thacher, was 
the widow of James Blinn, to whom she was married March i6th, 
1725. This James Blinn was probably the son of Mr. Blinn and 
Margaret Dennis, who were baptized at Milton, Mass., by Rev. 
Peter* Thacher (Rev. Thomas^), July 20th, 1701 ; where this James 
Blinn lived and died is undetermined. It is stated by some authori- 
ties that Mary Greenleaf had 10 children by Mr. Blinn, which 
statement seems incredible, as she married him March i6th, 1725, 
and married Josiah* Thacher on August 7th (or Sept. 15th), 1735, 
which would render it necessary for her to have had 10 children in 
a little over 10 years. Josiah^ Thacher had 10 children, — 4 by his 
first wife and 6 by his second, and I think the authority above re- 
ferred to confused the 10 children of Josiah* Thacher by his first 
and second wives, with 10 children supposed to have been born to 
Mary Greenleaf by her first husband, James Blinn. Wm. F. 
Boardman, in the Ancestry of Jane Maria Greenleaf, states that 



igta.] Thacher-Thatcher Genealogy. 4 1 

Mary Greenleaf had i6 children ; which would mean that she had 
lo by James BHnn and 6 by Josiah^ Thacher, I am inchned to 
doubt the existence of these lo Bhnn children, as I have never seen 
any record of their births or deaths. The place (Sf burial of Jo- 
siah^ Thacher is not positively known ; but in the East Norwalk 
Cemetery between the graves of his first and second wives there 
is a vacant place where it is presumed he lies buried. No record 
of his burial exists. 

Captain Josiah^ Thacher died intestate. On September 17th, 
1780, the bond of Josiah" Thacher, Jr. (the eldest son of the de- 
ceased), as administrator of the estate of his father was accepted. 
In 1782 Josiah** Thacher and Eliphalet Lock wood were allowed to 
sell land on the account of the estate of the late Captain Josiah* 
Thacher. May 6th, 1782, the inventory of Josiah^ Thacher was 
filed. This inventory takes up 1 1 pages of the Fairfield County 
Records. On November 3rd, 1783, another sale of land on ac- 
count of the estate was ordered. November 13th, 1783, the ac- 
counts of Josiah" Thacher as administrator were allowed. Jan- 
uary i6th, 1786, the distribution of the estate was ordered. August 
6th, 1790 distribution of said estate was finally allowed and ordered. 
In the probate records of Fairfield, Conn., Vol. 1795-1818, p. 678, 
we find the following record of final distribution : 

"We the subscribers being by the Honorable Court of Probate 
for the District of Fairfield appointed to make distribution of the 
Estate of Josiah Thacher, late of Norwalk, deceased, distributed 
the same in the following manner, viz : —

Captain Isaac Freeman, eldest son of Lieutenant Edmund 
Freeman of Eastham, removed to Fairfield, Conn., after his mar- 
riage, and died there before 1736 (he died actually May 21st, 1732), 
as appears by the terms of his mother's will. His widow returned 
to Yarmouth, Mass., and married a second time to Captain Job 
Gorham of Barnstable, Mass., as his second wife. Mrs. Sarah 
Freeman, widow of Lieut. Edmund Freeman, died in 1746, and 
in her will left legacies "to the four sons of my son Isaac, de-

married Job Gorham and again became a widow, died at Barnstable,

was a veiy attractive young lady possessing both personal 
and mental charms; her hand was sought by two gentlemen of 
great respectability, Freeman and Gorham. Both urged their suit 
earnestly. She had so warm a regard for both of them that in 
the unsophisticated tenderness of her heart she forbore giving pref- 
erence to either of them, and left it to the two suitors to decide 
between themselves. No bloodshed occurred, but Freeman was de- 
clared the victor and was rewarded by the hand of the fair Bethia. 
When she became a widow, she returned to the scene of her youth- 
ful conquest and became the second wife of Captain Job Gorham 
(her first husband's rival), who had in the meantime, on Decem- 
ber 4th, 1719, married Desire Dimmock (daughter of Thomas), 
who had born to him five (5) children, and who died January 28th, 

1732-3- 

The will of Capt. Job Gorham of Barnstable, Mass., gentle- 
man, is dated September 12th, 1753, and was proved November 
2nd, 1762. In it he names his wife Bethia Gorham and daughters 
Temperance Fuller and Desire Gorham, to whom he gives legacies. 
All the remainder of his estate he gives to his son Thomas, whom 
he appoints his executor. Capt. Job Gorham inherited the dwell- 
ing house built by his grandfather (Capt. John Gorham) in Barn- 
stable and the lands in its immediate vicinity ; and the same was 
held by his descendants as late as 1888. In 1745 he took down 
the old mansion and built the one which was standing in 1888 
on the same spot. Part of the material of the old house was used 
in the construction of the new one. Captain Job Gorham's children 
by his first wife,, Desire Dimmock, were as "follows : 

1. Temperance, born Barnstable, Mass., July 23rd, 1721 ; 
married October 29th, 1741, John Fuller, her cousin.

Rev. Thomas^ Paine at an early age was placed under Rev. 
Jonathan Russell of Barnstable for preparation for Harvard Col- 
lege. In 1713 he entered Harvard, and while there pursued the 
study of mathematics and astronomy far beyond the ordinary course 
of these studies there at that time. Plis great interest in these 
studies led him in 1718 and 1719 to publish almanacs in his own 
name. To the study of Latin, Greek, Hebrew and French he gave 
great attention, and graduated at Harvard in 1717. Having shown 
an early predilection for the ministry, in August, 1717, he began 
the study of theology under Rev. Theophilus liarnard of Andover, 
Mass. ; and upon completion of his studies he accepted a call and 
was ordained minister at Weymouth, Mass., on August 19th, 1719; 
he remained there until 1730, when ill health compelled him to ask 
for his dismission. He then went to Boston to reside and soon be- 
came engaged in commercial pursuits. He carried on a trade with 
the Southern Colonies, West Indies, and the new port of Halifax, 
N. S., and with England and other foreign ports, and soon acquired 
considerable wealth. He was also engaged in the manufacture of 
cannon and the casting of shot; he had foundries in Abington and 
Bridgewater. In the summer of 1749, his business affairs became 
involved in consequence of the capture of some of his vessels, and 
on account of the depreciated value of the existing currency, and 
general business conditions ; and his property was swept away. His 
health gave way, and he made a voyage to the West Indies ; and on 
his return made Halifax his place of residence. There he turned 
his attention to the study of law with the intention of practising. 
His health becoming greatly impaired, he was compelled to abandon 
his studies and he returned toBraintree, Mass., to a village nearby 
called Germantown, where his daughter Abigail Greenleaf lived ; 
and at her home passed to his rest and was buried at Weymouth, 
Mass. He was imdoubtedly a man of great talents, learning and 
piety.

Nathaniel Freeman, first husband of Mary^ Paine, died before 
the birth of his last child, Nathaniel" Freeman. His will mentions 
his wife Mar>% who was Executrix, and will was admitted to ad- 
ministration May 22nd, 1728, "the said widow and her father, 
James Paine of Barnstable, being granted letters of administration." 
Edmund Hawes, second husband of Mary^ Paine, was ruined finan- 
cially by the depreciation of Continental paper currency. In Jan- 
uary, 1777, the paper currency then in circulation was at 5 per cent, 
discount, in July it was at 25 per cent, discount, and before the end 
of the year three dollars in paper would not command one dollar 
in silver. The depreciation was so rapid that finally a paper dol- 
lar was only worth two or three cents. Edmund Hawes had sold 
his home to a Mr. Doane (the property since known as the Dr. 
Savage estate) and had been paid therefor in Continental paper 
currency, which almost immediately thereafter became worthless. 
Mr. Plawes, being thus reduced to poverty, went into the woods 
and hung himself. It is a singular fact that his only son also com- 
mitted suicide.

1. Rebecca, born July 23rd, 1739. 

2. Joseph, born October 17th, 1743. 

Joseph Smith (the second husband of Rebecca (Kean) 
Thacher) married first at Eastham, Mass., June 24th, 171 5, to Mary 
Hopkins, born at Eastham, Mass., January 20th, 1694-5; died at 
Eastham, Mass., between July 28th, 1732, and July 22nd, 1738. 
She was a daughter of Joshua and Mary (Cole) Hopkins, who were

In Mayflower Descendant, Vol. VH, pp. 185 and 186, we find 
the following entries among deaths in South Parish of Eastham, 
Mass., viz: — "wife Jos'^ Smith died 1775," — "Rebeca Smith died 
^777'' — "W'' Reb. Smith died 1781." It is possible that any one 
of these entries may refer to the date of death of Rebecca (Kean) 
Thacher-Smith, but I am not certain that they do. In the settle- 
ment of John Kean's estate, which took place in 1801, see 
Plymouth, Mass., Probate Records, Book No. 37, pp. 106-8, "Di- 
vision of Heirs of John Kean," the balance of estate is divided 
into shares and one share is allotted to heirs of Rebecca Smith, 
deceased.

Corrections: 

Vol, XLII, p. 87, i6th line from bottom, Jonathan Hawes and Jeremiah 
Hawes should read Jonathan Howes and Jeremiah Howes. 

Vol. XLII, p. 157, 13th line from top, i6th signer should read 13th signer. 

Vol. XLII, p. 157, 18th and igth lines from top, should read: He married 
Elizabeth Tilley (daughter of John Tiiley and ( ) Tilley, his wife, etc.). 

Vol. XLII, p. 164, I2th line from bottom, should read: Elizabeth Tilley was 

a daughter of John Tilley and his wife ( ) Tilley. John Rowland, his 

wife P:iizabeth (Tilley) Howland, and lohn Tilley and his wife (the mother of 
Elizabeth Tilley) were passengers on the first trip of the Mayflower in 1620. 

Vol. XLII, p. 255. The inscription on gravestone of Col. John-* Thacher 
was copied by Stanley W. Smith, 396 Beacon Street, Boston, Mass., from the 
Gustavus Hinckley copies of Barnstable Cemetery Records in the New Eng- 
land Historical-Genealogical Society's Library— and not from the stone itself. 

Note:— In preparing the records of John Tilley and his wife ( ) 

Tilley, and that of their daughter Elizabeth Tilley, I was guided by the state- 
ments made by Miss Annie A. Haxtun in her published Signers of the May- 
flower Compact, Part II, p. I, New York City, 1897. Miss Haxtun there states 
specifically that John Tilley (the i6th signer) was married twice, ist to 

Elizabeth , and 2nd to Bridget Van der Veide. Miss Haxtun in her time 

was regarded as good authority and hence my acceptance of her statement. 
Since the compilation of this portion of these records Mr. George Ernest 
Bowman has conclusively proven that the John T^illey who married Bridget 
Van der Velde in Leyden, Feb. 13, 1615, was not John Tilley the i6th signer of 
the Compact. (See Mayfloiver Descendant, vol. x, pp. 65-6-7.) I have there- 
fore corrected my article on the authority of Mr. Bowman, whose article, at the 



iqi2.] Copy of Family Records of E lias Mulford 6 1 

time (April, igiOof going to press, had not been brought to my notice. As 
Miss Haxtun's authority for stating that the baptismal name of John Tilley's 
wife was Elizabeth is not given in her work, and as I find no further authority 
for such statement, I have corrected my article so that both the baptismal 
name and the maiden surname of John Tilley's wife remam, unstated.

74 Descendants of Edward Tre{a)dwen through his son John. [Jan., 

In this will are mentioned testator's wife, Margaret, to whom 
was given the use of all his real estate in Rye until their son 
Samuel became of age, then the use of one-third thereof, and, 
upon her death, the property to go to San^uel; his three daughters, 
each under eighteen and unmarried, namely, Gloriana (eldest), 
Margaret (second), and Mary (youngest), to whom were given 
the proceeds of the sale of the two pieces of land his uncle Col. 
John' Tredwell left him. The will further mentions the con- 
tinuance of testator's indisposition at the time of said uncle's 
death and names testator's wife, brother Benjamin Tredwell, 
and brother-in-law, John Thomas, as the executors. 

One of the papers in the possession of the late Mrs. Joseph 
Augustus Tread well, was the inventory of " the Goods and 
Chattels ... of Samuel Tredwell Esq Late of the Town of 
Rye," dated the 19th of April, 1748, and made by Jeremiah 
Fowler and Joseph Isinghartt, who appraised the personal estate 
left by Samuer Tredwell at ^7i4-5s.-2d. Among other things 
it mentions his Bible, books, many horses and cattle, farming 
implements, and six slaves. 

In Liber E, page 276, of the Hempstead town records, is a 
copy of a deed dated the 27th of April, 1748, from John Thomas 
and Margaret Tredwell, widow, both of Rye, executors of the 
last will of Samuer Tredwell, conveying to Thomas' Tredwell of 
Hempstead, gentleman, 45 acres of upland and meadow on the 
east side of Hicks' Neck, on the south side of Hempstead; also 
20 acres of upland and meadow on the same neck. Benjamin 
Tredwell was one of the subscribing witnesses.* 

Samuer Tredwell's widow married Judge David Jones. In 
his will dated the 28th of November, 1755 (?i765), William Willett, 
Jr., of Rye, mentions her as sister Margaret, wife of David 
Jones, Esq.f 

This has prompted the claim that the maiden name of Mar- 
garet (Tredwell) Jones was Willett. But, in this will, the testator 
also mentions Gloriana, the wife of Edward Stevenson, as his 
sister, and John Thomas as his brother. Edward Stevenson is 
known to have married Gloriana Thoiiias.X The explanation is. 
Col. William Willett, the father of William Willett, Jr., married 
Margaret, the widow of the Rev. John Thomas and the mother of 
the said- Margaret Jones and Gloriana Stevenson. 

His wife Margaret is mentioned in Judge David Jones' will 
dated the 26th of July, 1768, and also in the codicil thereto, both 
of which were probated the 27th of October, 1775, and recorded 
in Liber 30 of Wills, page 31, in the office of the Surrogate of the 
county of New York.§ 

Margaret (Tredwell) Jones left a last will dated at Harrison, 
the 20th of January, 1789, which was probated the 21st of March, 
1789, and recorded in LilDer A of Wills, page 113, in the office of

the Surrogate of the county of Westchester, New York. It 
mentions her son, Samuel Tredwell; her daug'hter-in-la\v, Dorothy 
Tredvvell; her grandson, John Augustus Tredwell; her three 
daughters, Gloriana Pell, Margaret Ogden andl Mary Stevenson; 
her grandchildren, Nancy Stevenson, Alexander Stevenson and 
Samuel Stevenson; and her son-in-law, Benjamin Stevenson. 
The executors named were her daughter Margaret and her son 
Samuel, besides two others. In September, 1794, Isaac Sniff en 
of Mamaroneck, Westchester county, seems to have been the 
only acting executor.*

the New York Journal or General Advertiser for the 19th of

13th May, 1774 (date of probate of her will), daughter of 
Epenetus and Elizabeth (Smith) Piatt of Huntington. It is 
uncertain where either Timothy' Tredwell or his wife was 
buried, but, presumably, they were interred in the same plot on 
his homestead at Sunk Meadows, where his mother had been 
buried (see page 318, July, 191 1, Record). Residence, town of 
Hempstead to about 1735, soon after which he moved to Sunk

likewise named one of the executors.* 

The Ulster county, New York, records contain a copy of a 
deed dated the 20th of October, 1749, from Uri Waygant and wife, 
Jean, to Timothy* Tredwell of Smithtown, Long Island, conveying 
y-i part of a tract of land near "Blew Hills" in Ulster county 
and called " Tenston Medow," which had been granted to said

and recorded in Liber 17 of Wills, page 72, in the office of 
the Surrogate of the county of New York,| where the original

he left the use of his dwelling house and real estate in Smith- 
town for life, with remainder over to his "eldest son," Thomas, 
then not of age; also other children. His wife, brother Benja- 
min* Tredwell, and Zophar Piatt were named the executors. 
The original letters testamentary are now in the possession of 
Mrs. Charles Hilton Brown of the City of New York. 

About 1768, a controversy arose over the real property left by 
Timothy* Tredwell, and to settle this an action was commenced 
in the Supreme Court in New York City and, later, moved into 
the Court of Chancery. The details are set forth in the Records 
of Smithtown, Long Island, N. V., by W. S. Pelletreau, at 
pages 375 to 388. Therein (p. 380) will be found a copy of an 
agreement dated the nth of February, 176S, between Mary Tred- 
well, Philetus Smith and wife Phebe, and Hannah Tredwell, all 
of Smithtown. 

Mary Tredwell " of Smithtown . , . widow of Timothy

1774, and recorded in Liber 30 of Wills, page 245, in the office 
of the Surrogate of the county of New York.§ The original 
testament remains on file there. It mentions her son Thomas, 
to whom she devised the tract of land purchased of Floyd 
Smith; her daughter, Phebe Smith, to whom was devised 
testatrix's interest in lands in the Patent of Winnecomac and the 
right of lands and meadows on Sumpwam's Neck (Babylon) and 
on South Beach; and her son-in-law, Mr. Phenix. Her son 
Thomas and her son-in-law, Philetus Smith, were named the 
executors. Mrs. Charles Hilton Brown has an ancient copy of 
the letters testamentary issued upon the probate of said Mary 
Tredwell's will, dated the 13th of May, 1774; the inventory of the

mark on the Hempstead records, "a La*tch the fore Side of the 
off Eare." 

His marriage bond was signed by Benjamin Tredwell of 
Queens county, farmer, and by Benjamin Kissam,' Esq., and it 
recites that the license was obtained by John Tredwell of Queens 
county, farmer, and Peggy Cornell, of same place, spinster.

27 of Wills, page 46, in said Surrogate's office, Sarah Cornell of 
Hempstead speaks of her granddaughters, Phebe and Sarah 
Tredwell, the children of her daughter Peggy Tredwell. 

John" Tredwell left a will dated the ist of December, 1779, 
which was probated the 4th of February, 1780, and recorded in 
Liber 34 of Wills, page 76, in said Surrogate's office. It mentions

the sons, Thomas and John, receiving the homestead farm on 
Great Neck. The executors designated were testator's brother 
Benjamin Tredwell, his brother-in-law William Thorne, and his 
wife.

This work is similar to the previous works issued by this publishing

these previous works in the review section of this publication.

Right Reverend Anson Rogers Graves, S. T. D., LL.D., small octavo cloth, 
pp. 220. The New Werner Company, publishers, Akron, Ohio, 191 



em- 



This work is dedicated to "all boys who want t)o make something of th 
selves" and we feel assured that the dedication will accomplish its object.

logical, with Appendices on the Churchyards of Greasley and Flawford,

locality.

"Mansfield and North Notts Advertiser," by A. Stapleton, 191 1.

Edited by Frank G. Burke, Jr., Class Secretary, and a Committee. Vol. I. 
New Haven. Printed by The Tuttle Company, Rutland, Vt., 1909, 8vo, cloth, 
pp. 351-XXV. 

This volume is of course intended chiefly for the Class of 1909, and so it 
contains cartoons and various jocose allusions which are of especial interest to 
the men themselves. Besides this nonsense, however, the portraits and 
biographical sketches of the class will prove of value to genealogists and 
perhaps, some day, to biographers. 

Chancellor Robert R. Livingston, of New York and his Family, 
by Joseph Livingston Delafield. Pamphlet, pp. 45, reprinted from the report 
of the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society for 191 1. Printed

Dwight Dana, Class Secretary, and a Committee. Vol. I. New Haven, 
Printed by The Tattle Company, Rutland, Vt., 1911. 8vo, cloth, pp. 414. 

This is another of the class histories, so interesting to friends and so 
valuable to biographers of the future. The plan of adding statistics con- 
cerning relatives of the class who have been Yale men lends genealogical 
interest to the work. 

History of the New York Society Library, with an introductory 
chapter on libraries in Colonial New York, 1698-1776. Austin Baxter Keep, 
A. M. New York. The De Vinne Press. 1908. 8vo, cloth, pp. XVI-607. 
Price S7.50. 

An immense amount of historical and biographical research, is represented 
here, and the references in the foot-notes add most satisfactorily to its value. 
In addition, the work has been very fully illustrated with portraits, views, 
book-plates and facsimiles. It is of interest to know that Trinity Parish 
established the first library in New York, in 1698. The New York Society 
Library was founded in 1754, and its great services to the colonial town are 
ably set forth in this work. 

Foreman-Farman-Forman-Genealogy. Descendants of William 
Foreman, who came from London England, in 1675, and settled near 
Annapolis, Maryland, supplemented by single lines of the families of the An- 
cestors of the writer's paternal great-grandmother, his grandmother his own 
mother and the descendants of Edward Frisbie, an original settler of Brantord 
Conn, by Elbert Eli Farman, LL.D. Octavo, cloth, pp. 232. Limited edition of 
100 numbered copies. Price S5.00. Published by Tobias A. Wright, New 
York, 191 1. 

Few men possess the ability, experience and means to gather and put into 
concise and simple order such a vast amount of genealogical data as this book 
contains. Mr. Farman has made it easy for thousands of his km to trace tlicir 
ancestry to William Foreman who came to America in 1675 and settled near 
Annapolis, Maryland; in fact he has traced it for them, and the publisher has 
spared no pains or expense to produce a book worthy of the matter it contains. 
Type, presswork, paper and binding, all show the practiced hand of the master 
book-maker. The illustrations, 15 portraits, 2 ancient tombstones, and the 
family coat-of-arms, beautifully reproduced in colors, add artistic tone and 
historic interest, while a very complete index, the boon ()f all genealogical 
gleaners, completes this very unique and dignified volume of 232 pages.

EDWIN HENRY WEATHERBEE. 



By Richard Hp:nry Greene. 



Edwin Henry Weatherbee, son of Henry Micajah and Mary 
Angell Weatherbee, was born at Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y., 
Sept. 23rd, 1S52. It was my privilege to bring him into this Society 
and he became a life member Jan. 6th, 1896; and in 1890 was 
elected to fill the vacancy in the Board of Trustees caused by the 
death of Samuel Burhans, Jr. 

He was prepared for college at the Amenia Seminary and 
Hopkins Grammar School at New Haven, Conn. He entered Yale 
University and was graduated in the Academical Department in 1875 
with the degree of A. B. After teaching for two years as principal 
of the High School of his native city, he entered the School of Law 
in Columbia University, and was graduated in 1879 with the degree 
of Lly.B. and was admitted to the New York bar. b'or three years 
he was associated in the office of the U. S. District Attorney for the 
Southern District of New York, under Hon. Stewart Lyndon 
W^oodford, District Attorney, who had been Colonel and Brevet 
Brigadier General in the War for the Union, Lieutenant Governor 
of the State of New York, and since United States Minister 
Plenipotentiary to Spain. 

On Nov. 15th, 1881 Mr. Weatherbee married Miss Amy Henri- 
etta Constable, daughter of the late James M. Constable, of the firm 
of Arnold, Constable & Co., the great mercantile house founded by 
Aaron Arnold in 1816, who was the grandfather of his wife, and of 
which he became the head, and was sole manager at the time of his 
death, having entered the firm in January, 1882. 

John Wetherby came at the time of the Puritan emigration in 
1630-32, during the conflict between Charles I and Parliament. 
He came from Norfolk, the Puritan section of England. There is 
a town named Wetherby in Yorkshire. The name is variously 
spelled, changes occur in the first vowel and the termination, but 
undoubtedly the family is one. John the emigrant ancestor, mar- 
ried early in 1672, Mary, daughter of John Howe, Jr., born Jan. 
18th, 1654. John Howe, Senior, came from Warwickshire. Both 
families lived in Sudljury and Marlborough, Mass.

Edwin Henry Weatherbee. [April, 



Jolm and Mary Wetherby had three sons : Joseph, born Sept. 
18th, 1672, who married Elizabeth, Feb. 9th, 1699; John, born 
March 26th, 1675; and Thomas, born Jan. 5th, 1678, married 
Hannah Woods, daughter of John and tydia Woods, Feb. 20th, 
1699. She was born in Marlborough in 1677, and died Jan. 23rdi 
1713. Thomas and Hannah had : Thomas, born in 1705 and Silas in 
1707. They removed to Grafton, and again to Shrewsbury, Mass. 

John Woods was the eldest son of John Woods of Sudbury, who 
was the Sergeant of the garrison house in King Philip's War, and 
John Wetherby also volunteered at that time to defend the town. 
The tune assigned me is inadequate to trace the line to the subject 
of our sketch, but enough has been said to show his earliest an- 
cestors were patriotic Puritan men and women. 

The father of Mr. Weatherbee was prominent in politics, and in- 
terested in early railroads. He was elected to office, and showed in 
his administration thereof the training he had received from his an- 
cestors. He married Mary Angell, a descendant of Thomas' Angell, 
born in England in 1618, who came to this country on the Lioyi in 
1630 from London with Roger Williams. He was a minor. He moved 
to Salem, Mass. in 1631, and w^ent with Williams to Providence, 
R. I. in 1636, His wife Alice died in 1693 and he the next year'. 
They had two sons and four daughters : John' Angell, born 1646, 
died July 27th, 1720, married Jan. 7th, 1669, Ruth Field, daughter 
of John. She died 1727. He served in King Philip's War, they 
had four sons and two daughters. Daniel' born May 2nd. 1680, 
married Hannah Winsor, she died June 16th, 1750. Ezekier, born 
1722, was a baptist minister at Smithfield, R. I. He married Ruth 
Sprague, and died Sept. 27th, 1782. She was born Dec. 6th, 1728, 
and died Dec. 22nd, 1816. Joshua', the third son, born at Smith- 
field, March 29th, 1760, served as a soldier in the Revolution, though 
but fifteen when the war commenced. He married Mehitable Man- 
ton. They removed in 1807 to Kinderhook, N. Y., and later to 
Chatham in the same County. He died Feb. 10th, 1838, and his 
wife Oct. 2nd, 1825. John', the eldest child, born Aug. 20th, 
1794, at Johnson, R. I., married Amy A., daughter of Joseph 
Harger. She died May 11th, 1874. They had three sons and Mary 
Angell who married Henry M. Weatherbee. 

The Harger family lived at Stratford and Derby, Conn. The 
tradition states that they were Huguenots, and came from New 
Rochelle, N. Y., into that state. Jabez Harger, born in 1642, who 
married in 1662, Margaret, daughter of Henry Tomlinson, and died 
in 1678. They had Samuel, born Sept. 29th, 1663, Ebenezer, born 
Dec. 25th, 1674, Abraham, born April 1st, 1677, and Jabez, 
posthumous. This was the family of Joseph Harger, the great- 
grandfather of Mr. Weatherbee. His great-grandmother Mehit- 
able Manton, shown above, was the daughter of Daniel Manton and 
Patience Eddy. This family was of Providence, R. I., the earliest 
being Edward who lived there until his death in 1682. 

Daniel Manton was one of the organizers of a Troop of Horse, 
chartered by the Assembly of Rhode Island in 1775. It was called 



Igl2.] Edivin Henry Weatherbce. 1 I I 

the Captain Generals Cavaliers. They did duty about their home 
town Providence, and in May, 1783, the return of the officers was 
approved bv the General Assembly as follows: Daniel Manton 
captain- Caleb Harris, first lieutenant; Nich^olas Eddy, second 
lieutenant; John King, Jr., cornet, and William Waterman, quarter- 
master. Mr. Weatherbee joined the Sons of the Revolution as a 
descendant of Captain Manton. 

Mr Weatherbee, as before stated, married Miss Amy Henrietta 
Constable, daughter of James M. Constable, a native of Stonngtoii, 
Surrey England, and Henrietta, his wife, daughter of Aaron Arnold, 
who came from the Isle of Wight, England, where for generations 
his ancestors had lived on a property known as, Waytes Court, 
Broxton. This name Mr. Weatherbee gave to his plfice on the 
shore at Mamaroneck, N. Y., which was originally part of the De 
Lancey family's grant from Queen Anne of England. 

Mr. Weatherbee found time amid his engrossing business and 
social engagements to travel, visiting all parts of the world and 
some places frequently. He has been a successful competitor at 
various horse shows, and has taken an interest m yachting, driving 
riding and sports of various kinds, while his taste for literature and 
the arts was not neglected. 

The end came unannounced and quietly, while in company of 
his wife and daughters at the performance of La Boheme" at the 
Metropolitan Opera House. Just as the curtain rang down on the 
last act he slipped from his chair and became unconscious. In the 
box with them. Dr. Samuel Milbank, the fiance of his daughter, 
was present and gave every attention. He was removed to his home 
and remained in a critical condition from that evening, (the 7th;, 
until he died, Sunday, Feb. 11th, 1912, in the 61st year of his age. 
His children : Henrietta Constable Weatherbee (Mrs. Caleb 
Potter Read), Hicks Arnold Weatherbee and Mary Angell Weather- 
beee who is engaged to Dr. Samuel Milbank, were all with him at 
the end. The city home was at 240 Madison Avenue. 

He was a member of the Chamber of Commerce, the Sons of the 
Revolution, the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 
New England Society, Metropolitan Museum of Art and American 
Museum of Natural History, and the following Clubs : Union 
League, Metropolitan. Yale, University, Reform, City, Riding and 
Driving, Michaux Bicycle, Knollwood, Jockey, New York \acht. 
American Yacht, Earchmont Yacht, Westchester Horse Show Asso- 
ciation, and a director of the Y. M. C. A. 

Notwithstanding this, he seldom spent any time at any of these 
for he was not a clubman. He was essentially a home man and 
was happiest there; and when he strolled over his estates or drove 
up to his different places, or sailed in his launch upon the sound, 
he always wanted some of his dear ones with him in his usual trips 
at the week-ends, when at home; for every year he went abroad, 
though he had travelled extensively in many different countries, as 
well as having seen all parts of his own. 



^ ^ 2 Edwitt Henry IVeatherbee. [April, 

His love of family was not confined to his own domestic circle, 
for he was interested in the scenes and homes where his ancestors 
had lived ; so much so that he had purchased many of these, on 
both sides, thus showing- his fondness fqr them and their surround- 
ings. These he not only restored, but enlarged and fitted up, add- 
ing artistic decorations, and beautifying with rare and costly woods 
and ornaments ; sometimes supplementing the skill of his architects 
with his own contributions gathered in his travels; and in the house 
upon the Sound, he reproduced many of the old world features in a 
more beautiful and elaborate copy, which the old Hall on the Isle 
of Wight could not aspire to. 

His was a sunny disposition, full of mirth and witticism, this 
playfulness was very noticeable even at the last meal with his 
family. His good taste and kindness held him in check, remembering: 

" True wit is like a brilliant stone. 

Dug from the Indian mine, 
Which boasts two different powers in one, 

To cut as well as shine. 
Genius, like that, if polished right. 

With the same gifts abounds, 
Appears at once both keen and bright, 

And sparkles while it wounds." 

It is so easy for the wit to be led into the playful word that 
makes a wound, perhaps an enemy for life, like Poor Yorick, whose 
wild way of talking cost him ten enemies for every joke." This 
man was far too tender for that. 

I have spoken of the places bought by him, yet, in acquiring 
these he never disturbed the former owner or occupant, but drew 
them into a friendly employment, and on his visits talked with 
them of his plans and theirs, with all the friendliness of equals. 
Here was the explanation of the respect and love from all his sub- 
ordinants, in business and other places. Arrogance and oppression 
were never in his treatment of any man. Augustine's rule applies 
to him: "Make companions of few, be intimate with one, deal 
gently with all, speak evil of none." His college room-mate seems 
to have been his close friend to the end. 

He was passionately fond of nature, and Columbia County between 
the broad Hudson and the magnificent Berkshires was just the place 
for its full enjoyment; not merely this, but education, and as 
Milton says : 

" In contemplation of created things, 
By steps we may ascend to God." 

So of that other fondness which he had — music. Whoever 
knew an}'- but a good man with these ? Shakespeare truly says 

" The man that hath no music in himself, 
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, 
Is fit for treasons," — 

and all the world is ready to admit the truth, and then rise to the 
higher note of Dr. George W. Bethune: " Music, celestial visitant ! 
so familiarize us with thy high and saintly language in this lower 



1912.] "Frame" Van BusA'zrA. II3 

sphere, that we may be the better purified and prepared to join in 
the new song, in that clime, whence thou hast thy source." 

Mr. Weatherbee was a member of the Church of the Incarna- 
tion, Madison Avenue and 35th Street. He was dlso a Vestryman 
of that church, and an intimate friend of its pastor, Rev. H. C. 
Robbins, its rector. 

The business will be continued by the family, and Kicks Arnold 
Weatherbee, his only son, a graduate of Yale, of the class of 1908, 
will manage it for them. May the virtues of the father be so im- 
pressed that there may be no diminution of upright faithfulness 
in the business and of the family. 

The funeral services were held at the Church of the Incarnation, 
Madison Avenue and 35th Street, and the large attendance testified 
to the estimation in which the deceased was held by a large circle 
of friends, representing everj^ walk in life. 



"FROME" VAN BUSKIRK. 
The Wanderings of a New York Family. 



By W. L. Bartlett. 



Genealogy has its surprises and romances. The typical delver 
into vital records does not suggest much romance, it is true, in 
his round-shouldered search of maddening indices, but he often 
uncovers a story which traces a thread of romance through 
centuries. Imagine the pleasurable interest with which a man 
discovers that some New England ancestor was hanged as a 
witch at Salem. Among the surprises of genealogy may be 
mentioned the Scotch-Gaelic speaking negroes whom Kipling 
speaks of in bis " Captains Courageous." And in Creole Louis- 
iana the very names on the streets have a French and Spanish 
background which fades into romance. Back of all this is the 
sombre tinge of black blood, which often brings tragedy into 
genealogical research. Witness the young man of wealth and 
honored name who incautiously consulted the parish register 
only to find " F.M.C." (free man of color) against his maternal 
grandfather's name. He committed suicide and his beautiful 
sister became insane. 

In a certain Massachusetts city a few years ago lived a man 
whose ancestry, while not at all famous, suggests several points of 
interest. He was commonly called "Frome" van Buskirk. A 
little inquiry into his Christian name would show that it was 
spelt " Vroom." In a land of Adamses, Lunts, Dows and Eatons, 
a land of as thorough Yankee connotation as can be found, lived 
the owner of this Dutch patronymic, which would have passed 
muster in Amsterdam itself. 
8a 



^ ^4 "Fronig" Van Buskirk. [April, 

But Vroom van Buskirk was not Dutch in appearance, manner 
or thought. He was as thorough a Yankee, to look at him, as any 
Adams or Eaton among them. In fact he had become a perfect 
part of his environment. As for v*an Buskirk's ancestr)- the 
reader has of course placed him as Dutch of the first water, 
Dutch as windmills, or cheese, or anything else which suggests 
the heroic land of dikes and canals. But if you asked the man 
himself what he was, he would have answered that he was a Nova 
Scotian. Yes, in the county histories of the Annapolis Valley 
will be found the genealogies of the Vrooms and the van Bus- 
kirks. There in a country wrested from the Indians by the 
French, and from the French by the English, within a short jour- 
ney of Longfellow's Grand Pre these families have been Nova 
Scotian farmers for three or four generations. Here they were 
and are indistinguishable from the English families about them, 
yet retaining their Dutch Christian names, and preserving the 
Dutch pronunciation. What Englishman would pronounce 
Vroom as " Frome ? " 

The Vrooms and van Buskirks were British Tories who were 
brought to Nova Scotia from New Jersey and New York at the 
close of our Revolutionary War. Thus they figure not as listless 
subjects of whatever power they happen to be under, but as 
profound partizans. They were enthusiastically loyal to King 
George, so much so that they sacrificed their properties and their 
homes for his cause. 

We can but wonder if these families accepted British domina- 
tion as eagerly as they afterwards clung to it. What were their 
feelings when Col. Richard Nichols sailed up New York Bay with 
his "three hundred valiant red-coats"? Search of Diedrich 
Knickerbocker's famous history fails to identify them as welcom- 
ing the dreaded English ruffians, and it is more probable that 
they were among the sullen Dutch who gazed at the English 
troops from their garret windows, and resolved to get even with 
their conquerors by not inviting them to dinner. 

We have now traced " Frome " van Buskirk's genealogy to its 
first American setting and there we will leave him. America has 
many similar stories of the vicissitudes and wanderings of family 
names, as interesting as those of Europe. The story of these 
Dutchmen had its parallel in some German stripling, straying in 
advance of the great Germanic invasion into Provincia Cisalpina, 
there to be plowboy, warrior, and then, with a Latinized name, 
master to the efi^eminate Roman noble whom he served. Thus 
"Frome" van Buskirk, working at his trade in Yankee Land 
brings to our mind the Dutch settler of New Amsterdam, whose 
hate for his British conqueror changed into such loyalty that he 
endured exile for his king's sake. He was transported to far off 
Nova Scotia, only to return after a few generations to accept the 
ideas and principles of those colonists with whom he scorned to 
cast his lot in Revolutionary days. There as a plain Yankee, un- 
mindful of his piquant ancestral history, he rounded out his life 
and was gathered to his fathers.

LIEUTENANT-COLONEL BENJAMIN HUNT, THE 

LOYALIST, HIS ANCESTRY AND 

DESCENDANTS. 



By a. W. Savary, M.A. 



Wyman's Himt Genealogy is not only obscure in construction 
and unscientific in form generally, but abounds in errors, at least 
in connection with the family to which Col. Hunt belonged. 
The author professes to rely for the earlier section of his 
"New York Line" on the genealogical notes and other data in 
Bolton's History of Westchester County, no doubt a splendid work 
as far as it deals with ordinary matters of county history, but not 
so reliable in the pages of the appendix devoted to pedigrees. 
His errors have been pointed out to me by my esteemed corres- 
pondents George T. Fish, Esq., of Rochester, N. Y., and Benjamin 
W. Hunt, Esq., of Eatonton, Georgia, to whom with Doctor 
William L. Macy of King's Park Hospital, N. Y., I am much 
indebted for extracts from wills and other matter used in com- 
piling the earlier part of this record. At the close of the 
revolutionary struggle Benjamin Himt, after strenuous military 
service, came to Nova Scotia and settled at Upper Clements in 
the Township of Clements, in what is knov/n as the Ryerson 
Settlement, about five miles from the town of Annapolis Royal, 
where he was until his death a prominent and influential citizen. 
In his deposition before the Commissioners appointed to take 
evidence on the claims of the Loyalists for compensation for 
their losses, sworn at Annapolis Royal, Oct. 16, 1786, and copied 
in vol. 18, pp. 147-165, of the evidence as transcribed for the 
New York Public Library, he gives three clues as to his origin 
and identity: ist he was a native of Eastchester; 2nd he was a son 
of Moses Hunt; 3rd he had been firmly attached to the crown 
and government from the beginning of the troubles. This 
statement distinguishes him from the Benjamin Hunt who 
Wyman (pp. 169 and 170), jumping at the unreasonable con- 
clusion that he was the same man, says "commanded a regiment 
called Jersey Blues" on Long Island and with fifteen men 
achieved the exploit of capturing thirty British troops by 
stratagem, citing Bolton, ii, p. 484. (Bolton's revised history, 
which I will hereafter cite, ii. p. 658), and "finally attached to the 
Loyalists he migrated to the Provinces." There were actually 
four Benjamin Plunts contemporary, the scenes of whose activi- 
ties were not far apart in those days of fratricidal strife, ist my 
present subject; 2nd a son of a widow, Mercy Hunt, whose will 
proved July 5, 1762, mentions sons Jeremiah, Pexall and Benjamin; 
3rd a son of Thomas Hunt of Eastchester, whose will was proved 
Nov. 6, 1770; and 4th Benjamin Hunt, Junior, eldest son of my 
subject. 



I I 6 IJfutenant-Colonfl Benjamin Hunt, the Loyalist, f April, 

Bolton says (ii, p. 738) that the family were supposed to have 
descended from a younger son of Thomas Hunt of Shrewsbury, 
Shropshire, England, Bailiff* of Shrewsbury in 1613, which would 
mean that Thomas the immigrant ancestpr was such younger son, 
or a son of his, but when he says that Thomas Hunt was Sheriff 
of Shropshire and a Colonel in the Parliamentary army, he 
means another Thomas Hunt. The arms assigned to the family 
by Bolton are the same as given in Burke's General Armory to 
the Hunts of Longnor, Shropshire, the main features of which 
are common to a good many Hunt families: Per pale ar. and sa., 
a saltire counterchanged; crest: a lion's head erased per pale 
argent and sa. collared, gii. lined and ringed or.\ The immigrant 
ancestor of this family, like the immigrant ancestor of the great 
Washington himself was a Royalist and a member of the Church 
of England, escaping from the rule of the victorious enemies of 
the Church and Crown, and his descendants for the most part 
continued attached to the Church of England for several gener- 
ations, as Bolton's pages, where they are frequently mentioned as 
Church officials, sufficiently show. Some of them, however, of 
the early generations united with the Society of Friends. 
I. Thomas' Hunt was of Stamford, Conn., in 1650 and 1653, 
probably of Rye, N. Y., in 1652, and removed to Westchester 
where he obtained, Dec. 4, 1667, from Governor Nichols a 
patent for the " Grove Farm " which was " ratified and con- 
firmed " to him by Governor Dongan in 1686 (Bolton, ii, 268-9). 
He died 1694. His wife's name was Cecilia, but I cannot give 
her maiden name. He had sons: 

i. Thomas,' b. before 1644; m. 1665, Elizabeth Jessup. 
I say before 1644 because he was old enough to sign 
an important public document as Thomas Hunt, 
Junior, in 1665 (Bolton, ii, 296). His eldest son 
Thomas,' b. 1666; d. Oct. 25, 1739, ae. 73; m. Elisa- 
beth Gardiner. Thus the second Thomas was at 
first known as Thomas Hunt, Jr., and after his son 
Thomas' became of age, as Thomas Hunt, Sr., of 
(the town of) West Farms, while the first Thomas 
Hunt became Thomas Hunt, Sr., of the Grove Farm. 
When the first Thomas died his grandson Thom.as 
had been of age and an active participant in the 
affairs of the community seven years, destined him- 
self to become in time Thomas Hunt, Sr., and so 
these Thomas Hunts, Senior and Junior, are more 
or less confused by Bolton and Wyman. One thing 
is abundantly clear: they were all men of position, 
influence and usefulness. Bolton shows that the 
Hunt family came into possession of Hunt's Point at 
the extremity of Planting Neck in West Farms by 

* Bailiff would correspond to a modern Mayor or Alderman. 

f Burke also gives arms granted to a member of this family in 1623, 
differing from tlie^ one ]ust described by the addition of a crescent on the 
saltire, all counterchanged and substituting for crest " a hind's head couped ar. 
wountlcd on the breast\vith a pheon sa. dropping blood ppr."

the marriage of Thomas Hunt to the daughter of 
Edward Jessup, and held it for nearly i6o years. 
This applies to the second Thomas Hunt. It will be 
seen that there is also a Hunt's Poipt in Nova Scotia. 

ii. John, b. ; had son William bap, Oct. 7, 1680; was 

a Justice in 1702. 
iii. Joseph, b. before 1652, had a son of age in 1696 (Bol- 
ton, ii, 311). 
2 iv. Josiah. 
I have followed the order in which they are named in the Indian 
deed of 1692 (Bolton, ii, 290), where they with others are described 
as Trustees of the Freehold and Commonalty of Westchester. 

2. Josiah^ Hunt (Thomas'); Bolton says he married Bethiah 
Horguson, which is a mistake for Ferguson and applies not to 
this but to another Josiah. He m. (1) before June 28, 1671, 

Rebecca ; m. (2) before Aug. 16, 1688, Martha ; d. Dec, 

1732. He was Alderman and Church Warden, 1701-2, and Justice 
and Church Warden, 1702-3. His father, Thomas Hunt, by his 
will (Bolton, ii, 269) shows that his eldest son was Josiah, devising 
to the latter the Grove Farm, but in the pedigree, p. 738, Bolton 
wrongly makes him an only son, and relegates the real Josiah 
to another generation, and gives the children a different order. 
I think it probable that Thomas named for his grandfather 
would come next. I therefore put the order of his children, sons: 
i. Josiah," commonly called "Grove Josiah," m. (license 
granted Dec. 24) 1695, Abigail, dau. of Robert, Jr., 
and Elizabeth (Bupton) Husted, and d. about 1745; 
births of children are in Friends' records.* Frorn him 
is descended my correspondent Mr. George T. Fish of 
Rochester, N. Y., in the following line: Caleb,* m. 
Sarah Hallock; Anna," m, Samuel Shotwell; Eliza- 
beth* Shotwell, m. Thomas Bills; Sarah Davids' Bills,

proved Dec. 19, 1732, devised to him 40 acres of upland in the 
Long Reach, being the nth lot bought of Richard Parton, also 10 
acres on the Long Reach being the 9th lot bought of Dora Garret- 
son and ;^75 privileges in said tract. He d. in May, 1764, and his 
will dated 1760, was probated May 21, 1764. His children (ten in 
all) in the order in which they were mentioned in his will were,

vi. Phoebe, m. Oakley. \ William, the other David. 

4. Lieutenant-Colonel Benjamin* Hunt ( Moses, ^ Josiah,' 
Thomas'). He took under his father's will his father's house and 
fresh meadow "which land lyeth to the Mile Square road and 
Bronx River, and so far down the river as to where there is a 
great bend and a hollow in the bend, from thence East across to 
the fence that joins the road from White Plains to King's Bridge, 
and so up the river to the Mile Square road" (extracted for me 
from Pelletreau's, Early Westchester County^ N. V., IVi/Zs, pp. 51, 
205-7). He declares in his petition for compensation as a 
Loyalist that he was ever uniformly attached to his Majesty's 
person and the British Government, and that he very early 
opposed the measures of the American Congress. Here I may 
note that ten members of the Hunt family of Westchester 
County, April 13, 1775, ^^^ ^Y the eminent Loyalist Frederic 
Phillipse, signed a protest against sending delegates to the Con- 
gress at Philadelphia, among them our Benjamin Hunt, and 
later John Hunt, Esq., requested that his name be added (Bolton, 
ii, p. 557). He acted at different times as Lieut.-Colonel of the 
Westchester militia during the war, and at different times had 
the command of them, and was frequently out with them on 
actual service. He acted as guide to the British army at the 
battle of White Plains, at the redaction of Fort Kniphausen, and 
on many other occasions; was taken prisoner and kept in close

confinement for ten months and his property confiscated and 
sold He says further that while the troops were m Boston he 
supplied them with provisions at great risk. In Oct., 1776, he 
ioined the army under General Howe at Pell'siManor, and gives 
further details of his military career. Other witnesses deposed 
in corroboration. He estimated his losses at ^^1799 f-^S'^^^^^ 
money, and was awarded ^1585. He was drowned while at- 
tempting to cross the Annapolis River between Granville and 
his homi in Upper Clements in July, 1796. Traditionm the line 
of his son Joseph, who was born only four years before that 
event says he was aged 60, but I think he must have been older. 
He died intestate. In the inventory of his estate we hnd one 
negro man named Jone, ^20. He was evidently married three 
times, but I have been so far unable to find the names of his first 
two wives. Mr. Isaiah Wilson, the historian of Digby County, in 
which many of his descendants live has thought that the one who 
came with him to Nova Scotia was a Purdy or a Ryerson, more 
likelv the latter, and that he and Francis Ryerson were brothers- 
in-law may account for their settling side by side. I cannot find 
any record of her death, nor any gravestone in ^f/ memory. No 
one knows where she was buried. I have consulted three of her 
grandchildren, all of whom have forgotten her name. 1 have 
found only a faint tradition in one line that her given name was 
Mary Ann, and that the eldest daughter of her son Elijah was 
named for her. His son George also named a daughter Mary 
Ann If the statement in Wyman that his first wife was of Long 
Island was furnished by William Hunt his grandson ^t is Probably 
true of the latter's grandmother, the second wife. Here 1 may 
remark that the descendants of Colonel Hunt have been migra^ 
tory and scattered, and have lost their ^^^^^^^ ^^^ "%J o

Wvman p 170. He was the eldest son of Colonel Benjamin

I 20 Lieutenant- Colonel Benjamin Hunt, the Loyalist, [April, 

property were discussed, and it was assumed as a well known fact 
that Benjamin was the only child of the Colonel by his first wife, 
thus confirming a conclusion I had reached that Benjamin, 
Junior, old enough to be married in Jan., 1779, was not likely to 
have been a child of the same mother as Elijah, born in 1784. 
The natural presumption is that Benjamin, Junior, was of age 
when he married, and if his father was only 60 in 1796, the average 
of the ages of the father and the son at their marriages was not 
more than 21 years. The records of Deeds for the County of 
Annapolis give a clue to the number of his children but not all 
their names as there was no deed of partition of his real estate. 
The law then gave the eldest son a double share, so that an estate 
was divided into as many shares as there were children plus one. 
We find his son Benjamin and wife Elizabeth, July 2, 1801, con- 
veying to Francis Ryerson an undivided fifth and on Sept. 10, 
1805, Elijah Hunt, then just come of age conveying to John 
Ryerson an "equal undivided tenth part," showing that there 
were nine children in all. George Hunt of Clements, Aug. 14, 
1798, conveys to Moses Hunt "^z" present* of the same place. 
Cooper" an "individed share," and Nov. 20, 1800, Moses Hunt, 
"carpenter," and Hannah his wife convey to Francis Ryerson an 
undivided half part, showing that Moses must have bought three 
shares besides that of George, but I fail to find any other deeds. 
The account of the Nova Scotia family in Wyman, p. 169, bears 
internal evidence of having been furnished by William Hunt 
(eldest son of Elijah and a grandson of the Colonel), whose family 
record is at the top of the second column of that page, which with 
that of his father's family and his brother Benjamin's I accept sub- 
stantially as he gave it to Mr. Wyman, as far as it goes, correcting it 
only where I know it to be wrong, but he does not give the names 
of all his uncles, nor any of his aunts. He gives the Colonel two 
daughters, but I think he had four, some of whom may have been 
married before their father came to Nova Scotia as we may 
perhaps safely infer from Wyman. Bolton in his chart pedigree 
of the Underbill family shows marriage of Lancaster Underbill, 
1772, with Eudosia, b. Dec. 24, 1752, dau. of Benjamin Hunt, but I 
conclude she must have been daughter of one of the other Benja- 
mins. I find on the records of St. Luke's Church, Annapolis, Wil- 
liam Grifiin m. Sarah Hunt who may have been a daughter of the 
Colonel. This was in Feb., 1791, the day not given, bul apparently 
on the same day as the last marriage of the Colonel himself. 

I therefore venture to construct an imperfect list of his 
children as follows — by ist wife: 

i. Benjamin,' b. before 1758; m. Jan., 1779, Elizabeth 
Gidney; Lieutenant in Emmerick's (Loyalist) Chas- 
seurs and in the British Legion Cavalry (Coll. N. B. 
Hist. Soc, vol. 2, p. 253, Sabine's App.), was of Clem- 
ents 'till 1789, of Digby 'till 1791 and of New York 

* The words "at present" would imply that his ordinary residence was 
abroad, and I conjecture that he may have removed to the United States and 
bought out sisters who had remained there and that the deeds were not recorded 
for want of the formalities necessary in case of execution abroad.

Finally he lived in Brooklyn, N. Y., and died there; 
had one son Joseph Gidney Tarleton', bap. at Digby, 
Oct. 18, 1790, the parents having firs^t received adult 
baptism on the same day. Joseph G. T. Hunt was 
a Physician, for a while practised in Bridgetown, N.

conjecture in note on a previous page he may have 
joined that strong current of migration from Western 
Nova Scotia, especially Digby, to Upper Canada, 
which began to flow about that time,

By 3rd wife Anna Stearns: 

7 ix. Joseph Stearns, b. May 31, 1792. 

5. George' Hunt (Col. Benjamin,' Moses,' Josiah," Thomas'), was 
b. probably in 1768, for he d. at Smith's Cove, Digby Co., Sept., 1850, 
aged 82. He m. at Granville, N. S., Feb. 10, 1795, Anna Dobbs of

widow's nephews, Edward and John Searp. He m. Dec. 22, 1808, 
at Digby, N. S., Diadama Spurr, and lived in Annapolis County, 
N. S., near the mouth of Bear River and in St. John, N. B. Mr. 
Wyman's informant was wrong in saying that his wife was a 
"native of England, inheriting English property;" she was a 
daughter of Abraham Spurr who came with his father Michael 
Spurr among the New England settlers of Annapolis County (see 
History of Annapolis, pp. 151 and 656). Her mother was Mary, 
dau. of Francis Le Quesne, or Le Cain, who m. Sept. i, 1745, 
Alicia Maria, dau. of Thomas Hyde, who had been a " Master " 
in the Ordnance Department at Annapolis Royal, in which Le 
Cain, a native of Jersey was " Master Armourer." Mr. Hyde d. 
in England. The account was compiled for Mr. Wyman probably 
at the time that the excitement about the elusive and fabulous 
" Hyde fortune " was at its height among numberless supposed 
heirs in Nova Scotia and the United States. His children were: 

i. Mary Ann,' b. Dec, 1809; m. Michael Hennigar.

A large number of the descendants of Col. Benjamin Hunt

Other Hunts in the Maritine Provinces. 

The roll of Loyalists mustered at Digby, May, 1784, (A^. Y. Gen. 
and Biog. Record, vol. xxxiv, p. 122), contains Theodis (probably 
for Theodosius) Hunt, i man, i woman, and Frederic Hunt, i 
man, 1 woman and 4 children above 10 years old in family, and 



126 Lieutenant-Colojtel Benja7nin Hunt, the Loyalist, [April, 

Thomas Hunt, no family. Probably the Frederic and Theodis 
were the two sons of Nehemiah of East Chester mentioned in 
Wyman, p. 167, and Frederic again on p. 337. If so Frederic 
must have returned to the U. S. and settled in New Haven, Conn., 
after the rancour of the war had abated. But Wyman's list of 
his children conflicts a little with tho muster roll. That of An- 
napolis Royal, June, 1784, gives us Benjamin Hunt i man, i 
woman, i child above 10 and i servant. I think this is Lieut. 
Benjamin, Jr., whose child by a clerical error in the copy recorded 
in the archives in Halifax is placed in the wrong column, for he 
could have had no child over ten at that date. The Colonel him- 
self had charge of a " class " in making and enrolling the muster. 
Besides Cosby Hunt, Lieutenant and Adjutant, mentioned by 
Sabine, Samuel Hunt and John Hunt were Loyalist grantees of 
St. John in 1783. I cannot account for John Hunt who d. at 
Marshalltown near Digby Jan. 12, 1846, ae. 86, and was therefore 
b. 1759 or 1760, but I think he was a nephew or first cousin of 
the Colonel. He m. apparently in middle age Tamar, daughter of 
Captain Frederic Williams, a prominent Loyalist from West- 
chester County, N. Y., whose wife was Eleanor Pell. He is said 
to have come to Digby from New Brunswick. He may have 
been the grantee of that name in St. John. To the Loyalist 
"protest" of Westchester County in 1775 no less than three John 
Hunts, besides John, Esq., signed their names, two of them 
Senior and Junior, and it was alleged by their opponents that 
two of them were under age. This John, then aged about 16, 
may have been one of these precocious ones; or he may have 
been of another family and State. There was a John Hunt, 
Lieutenant of the Loyalist " Guides and Pioneers," a corps 
attached to Colonel Beverly Robinson's Loyal Am. Regt. His 
wife d. July 4, 1S53. They had children: i. William J., b. 1810; 
d. Sept. 9, 1894; aged 84; 2. Ophelia, m. Stevenson or Stephen- 
son of N. Y., and had 2 sons John and George who lived in Bridge- 
port, Conn.; 3. Elizabeth, d. unm.* 

William J. Hunt, son of John, in his early days a merchant 
and shipbuilder at Marshalltown, Digby, m. Anna Boyne of St. 
John, and had a large family scattered in Digby, St. John, Port- 
land, Me., Boston, San Jose, San Francisco, Cal., Michigan and 
elsewhere. There is a tradition in both families of a distant 
relationship. The Hunts of Hunt's Point and other parts of 
Queen's Co., N. S.,are according to More's History of that County, 
descendants of Samuel Hunt, one of the pre-loyalist settlers, 
probably from New England. A prominent Prince Edward 
Island family is from an Irish ancestor who settled there in the 
last century. 

There is also a considerable family in Dartmouth, N.S., whose 
source I am unable to indicate. The ancestor may have come 
direct from England, or may have b^en of the Queen's County 
family.

27th May, 1766, Benjamin' Tredwell entered the following ear- 
mark on the Hempstead records, "a Crop of Each Ear & a slitt 
in Each Ear." 

He was one of the signers from Queens county of the Declara- 
tion of loyalty to the King, dated the 21st of October, 1776.! 

Michael Rodgers of Hempstead designated Benjamin' Tred- 
well as one of the executors of his will dated the sLh of April, 
17774 He was, likewise, named by Silas Carman of Oyster Bay, 
New York, in his will dated the 21st of May, i783.§ 

_ On Saturday night, the 2nd of August, 1780, while returning 
with her son Adam from New York City in a chaise, Benjamin' 
Tredvvell's wife was robbed of her horse and personal effects to 
the value of ^30 by some rebels, according to the Rivington 
Gazette. \ Dr. Tredwell met with a similar experience at the 
hands of a party of British Dragoons.^ Jones' Hutory of Nezu 
York, volume I, page 114, has an account at length of this affair, 
in the course of which Dr. Tredwell is spoken of "as warm and 
steady a Loyalist as ever had an existence." 

In the Spring of 1781, Parmenas Jackson was cruelly murdered 
by three privates from Delancey's Brigade, and Drs. Tredwell 
and Searing were called in the case.** 

Among the ancient family papers in the possession of Mr. 
Henry Hewlett Tredwell, is an unrecorded deed dated the 7th of 
May, 1784, from Stephen Titus and wife, Phebe, of Westbury, to 
Dr. Benjamin Tredwell. 

In 1785, Benjamin' Tredwell and three others made a loan to

upon real property in Beekman's Precinct, Dutchess county, ISI. Y, 

According to the United States census for 1790, Dr. Tredwell's 
family, that year, comprised 2 males over 16 years of age; 3 males 
under 16 years; four females; and 13 slaves. 

By a deed dated the ist of May, 1792, Benjamin' Tredwell and 
wife, Elizabeth, conveyed to David Allen, for ^3,000, the home- 
stead farm of 160 acres whereon grantor's father died, reserving

relative to the land thereby conveyed.* The title to the part 
reserved seems to be still in the descendants of Benjamin' Tred- 
well. ' 

His account-book, kept from 1776 to 1783, has been preserved 
among- the family papers and is now owned by his great-great- 
grandson Mr. Henry Hewlett Tredwell. His case of surgeon's 
instruments has been deposited in a public museum. 

Benjamin' Tredwell left a will dated the 21st of September, 
1829, which was probated in Queens county, New York, the 30th 
of August, 1830, and recorded in Liber Gof Wills, page 29, in the 
ofifice of the Surrogate of said county. In it are mentioned his 
son Benjamin, to whom he left all his real estate; his sons Adam, 
John, Seabury, George, and grandson Timothy Tredwell; children 
of his deceased son Samuel; children of his deceased daughter 
Elizabeth Kissam; his granddaughter Phebe Peggy Kissam, the 
representative of her deceased mother, Phebe Allen; his son-in- 
law, William Allen. Among- the family papers have been pre- 
served many of the receipts given by those receiving a share of 
his estate. 

Following are the inscriptions on the headstones marking the 
graves of Benjamin" Tredwell and wife: 

"In Memory of | Doct. Benjamin Tredwell | departed this 
Life I June 19, 1S30 | aged 95 years | i month 8 days." 

"In Memory | of | Elizabeth Tredwell | wife of Doct. Benja- 
min Tredwell 1 departed this life | April 7"', 1818 | in the 75"' year 
of her age." 

She was said to have been " a woman much beloved and re- 
markable for her hospitality." 

The obituary notice of Benjamin' Tredwell in the Long Island 
Telegraph and General Advertiser, issue of the 24th of June, 1S30, 
is, in part, as follows:! 

" Such is said to have been the esteem and confidence of the 
community in this aged Physician, that to the last, he retained a 
large portion of the practice in the neighborhood where he 
resided." 

Family tradition says that at the birth of each of his children 
Dr. Tredwell planted an evergreen tree in front of his house. A 
majority of these trees, now aged, are still standing. His old 
dwelling, greatly enlarged a few years ago, is now owned and 
occupied by his great-great-grandson, Henry Hewlett Tredwell. 
It is filled with many heirlooms, old furniture, books, papers and 
cabinets containing curios and mementos of former days gathered 
here and abroad, while the walls are covered with prizes won at 
early county fairs and elsewhere. 

The descendants of Benjamin' and Elizabeth (Seabury) Tred- 
well are eligible to membership in the Society of Mayflower 
Descendants and also in the Huguenot Society.

April 1745, died 4th July, 1808, buried in old town cemetery, 
Hempstead, daughter of Benjamin and Susannah (Whitehead) 
Hewlett. 

Susannah (Hewlett) Tredwell was married, secondly, in 
Hempstead, by Rev. Thomas L. Moore, 14th May, 1787, to Daniel 
Stevenson of North Hempstead. 

Samuer Tredwell resided at Success, town of North Hemp- 
stead. It is not known where he was buried. He was a farmer ; 
chosen overseer of highways, 1769 and 1770.* 

The marriage bond, signed by Samuel Tredwell of Queens 
county, farmer, and Samuel Kissam of same county, physician, 
recites that the license was obtained by said Samuel Tredwell 
and Susannah Hewlett of Queens county, spinster. 

On Christmas day, 1766, Samuel' Tredwell entered his ear- 
mark on the Hempstead town book as follows, "a slope the 
fore side the near ear & a hole in same."t 

2ist May, 1768, James Cornell and wife, Margaret, of Hemp- 
stead, conveyed 10 Samuel' Tredwell 140 acre farm and dwelling 
(particularly described) at Success, Dutch Church, lane, and 
burying ground excepted; also land adjoining the Great Pond 
used for a whitening yard, smoke-house, cider mill and mill 
house; also 6 acres at Hungry Harbor; and the patent right in 
Hempstead the said grantor purchased of James Smith, late of 
Dutchess county. I 

Samuer Tredwell's Bible was, a few years ago, in the pos- 
session of his great-grandson, William Tredwell Van Nostrand. 
On one of the pages is written, " Samuel Tredwell his Book, given 
him by his mother Sarah Tredwell." 

SamueP Tredwell left a will dated the 28th of August, 1781, 
which was probated the 20th of June, 1782, and recorded in 
Liber 35 of Wills, page 30, in the office of the Surrogate of the 
county of New York, where the original remains on file. His 
will, made while he was "sick and weak in body," mentions his 
son' William, to whom was devised testator's real estate; his 
wife (name not given); his daughters Elizabeth and Susannah. 
His father-in-law Benjamin Hewlett, his brother Benjamin 
Tredwell, and his brother-in-law Uriah Piatt were named the 
executors. § 

It was probably Samuel' Tredwell's widow who, m 1787, was 
allowed £z for taking care of an Indian woman. || 

According to the record of a satisfaction of a mortgage in the 
office of the clerk of the county of Queens, New York,l the 
name of Susannah (Hewlett) Tredwell's second husband was 
spelled Stevenson, but, in Samuel' Tredwell's Bible and on her 
gravestone, this name is spelled Stephenson. In 1897, the grave-

days later, Col. Isaac Nicoll and Henry Wisner wrote from Goshen 
to Gov. Clinton in behalf of the petition, Wisner stating that he 
was Tredwell's neighbor.* And on the loih of the following

In 1783, George Carr mortgaged certain real property in 
Orange county. New York, to William' Tredwell "of Great Neck, 
Queens county, gentleman.";]; The records in that county also 
show a mortgage from Stephen Gilbert to him;§ and in 1788, as 
one of the executors of his father-in-law's will, his nauie again 
appears thereon as a mortgagee.]] This will is dated the 29th of 
November, 1783, and was probated in New York county on the 
23rd of October, 1786.^1 

On the records in the office of the Register of Deeds for the 
county of New York is a copy of a deed dated the 2nd of October, 
1784, from John Leary to William Tredwell "of New York City, 
merchant," conveying a lot, 26 x no feet, on south side of Cort- 
landt street, in the West Ward of said city.** This lot William* 
Tredwell, in 1793, conveyed to George Gosman.ff 

According to the United States census taken in 1790 (printed), 
the household of William' Tredwell comprised 2 males over 16

23. Samuel' Tredwell (Samuel,* Thomas,' John,' Edward'), bap- 
tized at Rye, New York, 29th October, 1738,* died between loth 
September, 1794, and 31st July, i8i6; probably same who obtained 
marriage license to Elizabeth Lispenard "of Westchester county, 
spinster," daughter of Anthony Lispenard of New Rochelle, 
New York (marriage bondf dated 3rd May, 1759, signed by 
Samuel Tredwell of Westchester county, farmer, and Joseph 
Boel [?Bullj of same place, gentleman). 

Subsequently Samuel' Tredwell married Dorothy Anderson 
"of Queens county, spinster" (marriage bond| dated 8th October, 
1762, signed by Joseph Bull of New York City, shopkeeper, and 
James Breasted of same place, merchant, states that license was 
obtained by "Samuel Treddle of Westchester county, farmer"), 
living 22nd September, 1820. Samuel' Tredwell resided in town 
of Rye_(part now town of Harrisons), New York, the homestead, 
consisting of 200 acres, being on east side of road from Rye 
through Harrisons. He was a farmer; Captain of Troop, men- 
tioned on the rolls, dated 21st February, 1776, as Captain from 
Harrisons' Purchase of a cavalry company in the 2nd regiment, 
Westchester county, Thomas Thomas, Colonel ;§ vestryman of 
Christ's Church in Rye, 1770. On the public records he is styled 
"yeoman," "Esq.," "gentleman." 

His commission as Captain of Troop of Horse in Westchester 
county, James Van Cortlandt, Colonel, dated the 15th of June, 
1772, was (1890) among the family papers possessed by the widow 
of his great-grandson Joseph Augustus Tredwell. Other original 
papers consisted principally of bonds and receipts. 

In 1780, Samuel' Tredwell let for one year two rooms and an 
upper chamber in his dwelling to Lewis Jacobs of Saw Pitts, 
Harrisons' Township. || 

For some reason, Samuel' Tredwell became unable to pay his 
debts, so, on the loth of February, 1787, he gave a bill of sale of 
his slaves and household chattels as security to a William Ander- 
son, and on the 5th of November, 1788, his mother bound herself 
to give him ;!^4oo.|| Soon afterwards he quitclaimed his interest 
in his 200 acre farm in Harrisons to Thomas Burling.^ The 
above mentioned bill of sale was held by William Anderson at

assigned their rights therein to Dorothy Tredwell, widow of 
Samuel' Tredwell. 

In the office of the Register of Deeds for Westchester county, 
New York, are records of several mortgages from Samuel' 
Tredwell,* besides conveyances. 

In the list of confiscated estates mentioned in the Supplement 
(page 258) to Neiv York in the Revolution is the name of a Samuel 
Tredwell. This is probably Samuel' Tredwell of Harrisons. 
The loss of his property might explain his financial troubles in 
late life. 

The United States census for 1790 shows that his family then 
consisted of 5 males over 16 years of age; i white female; and 4 
slaves. 

In January, 1795, he brought suit in the New York Supreme 
Court against Benjamin Stevenson for trespass on the case.f 

His widow, Dorothy, conveyed to Jesse Park, Jr., Yz interest 
in certain islands nearly opposite Byram Point in Connecticut, by 
deed dated the 26th of July, and acknowledged the 22nd of 
September, 1820. J

member New York Assembly, 1777-1783; Council of Safety, 
while New York State Constitution was being organized, 1777, 
being last surviving member thereof; member State Senate, 
1786-1789, 1804-1807; delegate to State convention to ratify 
United States Constitution, voting against ratification; repre- 
sentative in Congress for Kings, Queens and Suffolk counties, 
1 79 1-1795; delegate from Clinton and Essex counties to State 
Constitutional Convention, 1801; judge (first) of Court of Probate, 
1778-1787, when made surrogate of Suffolk county, serving until 
1791; surrogate of Clinton county, 1807-1831; also of Essex county, 
1807. 

The marriage bond was signed by Thomas Tredwell of Suffolk 
county, yeoman, and Joseph Hallett of City of New York, iron 
monger, and states that the marriage license was obtained by 
said Tredwell and Ann Hazard of City of New York, spinster. 

According to the census of Suffolk county taken in 1776, the 
household of Thomas" Tredwell consisted of i male over 16 and 
under 50 years of age; 2 males under 16 years; 2 females over 
and 4 females under 16 years; 6 male and 6 female negroes.* 

While living at Smithtown, his wife Ann was stricken with 
paralysis. Upon the occupation of Long Island by the British 
during the Revolution, Thomas' Tredwell was obliged to abandon 
his home there and seek safety in Connecticut. 

His mansion at Beekmantown was only a few rods from the 
bay which it faced. In 181 2, the English forces passed through 
his farm. After his decease, the homestead was sold to Abram 
Miller; and in 1870, or 187 1, the dwelling was taken down and its 
timbers used in another building. Several of the inside panels 
were saved and upon them a coat-of-arms with the Tre^dwell 
name have been carved. No authentic record, however, has 
been found of any grant of a coat-of-arms to this family. 

Some forty slaves accompanied the family to their new home 
in Clinton county. These subsequently were emancipated and 
colonized by Judge Tredwell on the high ground a few miles 
northwest called " Richland," now known as " Dudy" or "Nigger 
Hill." 

12th July, 1788, letters of administration were issued in Ulster 
connty, New York, to Thomas' Tredwell on the estate of his 
brother-in-law, Samuel Hazard. 

According to the United States census for 1790 (printed), 
Judge Tredwell's family consisted of i male over 16 and i under 
16 years of age; 5 females; and 12 slaves. 

He was very fond of horseback riding, even in late life. Once, 
when riding through woods, his left eye was pierced by a twig, 
which destroyed the sight thereof. An oil portrait of Judge 
Tredwell was, a few years ago, in the possession of his grand- 
daughter, Mrs. Anna Maria Redfield; and several letters from 
him and his daughters have been preserved and are now owned 
by Mrs. Charles Hilton Brown of the City of New York.

140 Descendants of Edward Tre(a)diuell through his son John. [April, 

Tlie FJempstead Inquirer for 2nd February, 1S32, contains an 
obituary notice of "Hon. Thomas Trcdwell," and quotes a long-

Rev. Roland-' Thacher was educated for the ministry and grad- 
uated at Harvard College in 1733. He was the first pastor of the 
Church and Society of Wareham, Mass., where he was ordamed 
in 1740, and remained pastor there for thirty-four (34) years, dying 
greatly beloved and respected. 

The following is an extract from an original letter written by 
Col. John-* Thacher in 1761 to his son, Rev. Roland'' Thacher, from 
which it seems clear that the latter's name was in reality Roland 
Cotton^ Thacher, viz: — 
"My dear son Cotton: 

Through much weakness of body, I write these few lines to 
you, which I would have you receive and improve as the last and 
dying words of your aged father. A few moments after you were 
born, I went into the room to see my new born babe with the 
mother, and after giving thanks for her deliverance, I asked her 
'what we should do for a name.' 'Oh!' said she, 'I have a name 
ready, if you like it. Don't you know how often that good man, Mr. 
Cotton, comes in to see us? I want the child named after him.' 
To which I readily complied, and at the same time, I had sudden 
thoughts of giving you to God, as devoted to the work of the 
ministry. * * * " 

Col. John* Thacher, father of Rev. Roland'^ Thacher, died m 
1764, aged 90; hence he was 87 years old when he wrote the above 



1912.] Thachcr-TIiatcher Ge7iealogy. \6j 

letter. The original was in the hands of Mrs. Elizabeth Thacher 
(Benton) Bennett of Brooklyn, N. Y., who sent a copy of the same 
to Hon. Peter Thacher of Newton, Mass., from which copy the 
above extract was obtained. \ 

From the Cemetery at Parker Mills Station, Wareham, Mass., 
we obtain the following graveyard inscriptions : 

"Rev. Roland Thacher, Pastor of Church of Christ in Ware- 
ham, died February i8th, 1775, in his 64th year." 

"Abigail, virtuous consort of Rev. Roland, died October 31st, 
1753 — 33rd year." 

"Hannah, virtuous consort of Rev. Roland, died June 29th, 
1774 — 50th year."

he remained there is not known; but there is reason to think that 
he left his children by his first marriage in Lyme and that he re- 
turned to Harwich, for an original document of the nature of an 
agreement between John Dillingham and the three brothers, Thomas, 
Scotto and Nathaniel Clarke, made in the year 1735 styles Nathaniel 
Clarke as of Harwich, Mass.

wife; his first wife was Rachel Allen, whom he married in 1729), 
of Gloucester, Mass. ; he was a merchant ; he was born at Glouces- 
ter, , 1707; died April 13th, 1779, aged 72, at Gloucester, Mass. ; 

he was a son of Samuel and Mary (EUqry) Stevens of Gloucester, 

Mass. 

Col. John° Gorham resided at Barnstable, Mass., until 1742. 
In 1743 he was granted 400 acres at Gorham, Maine, on condition 
that he should finish the saw-mill and grist-mill that he had begun 
there. He did not become a permanent resident of Gorham. In 
1744 he was stationed in command of a body of provincial troops 
at Annapolis Royal, which place was threatened by the enemy; and 
he was sent by Governor Alascarene to Boston to raise troops for 
its defense. While in Boston he was induced by Governor Shirley 
to join the expedition there fitting out against Cape Breton. Hav- 
ing raised a number of men for that expedition, he received the 
appointment of Lieutenant Colonel in his father's regiment of pro- 
vincials, and was put in charge of the whale boats which were to 
land the troops. On the death of his father at Louisburg he was 
promoted by General Pepperell to be full Colonel. The following 
letter was written by him July 5th, 1751, from Hah fax, N. S., to 
General Pepperell, viz: — "1 was sent up to recruit from Annapolis 
Royal by Governor Mascarene, as that fort was then in great dan- 
ger of falling into the hands of the enemy ; and this expedition be- 
ing then in embryo, I was importuned by Governor Shirley, and 
desired by your Honor and many more of the Council to raise a 
number of men and purchase whale boats and proceed on the ex- 
pedition; as I did upon condition of my having the liberty of go- 
ing home with your Honor's packet in my own sloop, once the 
English flag should be hoisted at Louisburg. But I was disap- 
pointed in this, and received no commission in his Royal Regiment. 
My father died and most of his Regiment at Louisburg. But I 
thank you for giving me the commission of Colonel in my father's 
regiment, and nov/ I solicit a letter of recommendation abroad and 
assistance to carry through my memorial to the Legislature of 
Massachusetts." 

Colonel Gorham returned to Annapolis Royal after the cap- 
ture of Louisburg, and received from Governor Shirley the com- 
mand of the New England troops sent to Minas with Colonel 
Noble, but he was not present in the engagement with the French 
at Grand Pre, where Noble, who was in command, was killed. He 
had afterwards command of a body of Rangers comprised prin- 
cipally of Indians raised in New England for service in Acadia. 
Colonel Gorham came from Annapolis with the Rangers to Che- 
bucto in June, 1749, and was appointed to the Council of Gov- 
ernor Cornwallis and was present at the first meeting of July 14th, 
1749. It is uncertain whether he held a seat in the Council at 
Annapolis, as there are no records of that Council to be found be- 
tween 1745 and 1749, and but one entry in 1748, in which his name 
does not appear. Cornwallis however assigned him a place at the 



I912.] ThacIicr-T/iatcher Genealogy. 181 

Board above those gentlemen who came with him from England. 
He is called Captain in the last of Cornwallis' Council, which was 
probably his rank in the Regular (or Royal) Army, that of Col- 
onel being- only his Militia Rank. He was recommended to the 
consideration of the Government by General Peppdrell for his ser- 
vices at Louisburg-, and it is probable that the rank of Captain in 
the Royal troops was then conferred upon him. Colonel Gorham's 
name is among those of the Council at a meeting on July nth, 1751. 
He must have died soon thereafter, for an inventory of his estate 
is in the Suffolk County Probate Records of Massachusetts dated 
May 7th, 1752. His widow afterwards married Col. John Stevens 
and moved to Gloucester, Mass. At the close of the French War, 
Col. John^ Gorham and wife visited Europe and were presented 
at the Court of St. James and had an audience with the King, an 
honor very marked in those days. 

The following is the inscription on the grave of Elizabeth 
(Allen) Gorham-Stevens: — 

"She supported through life the Christian Character, and 
moved in the various circles of domestic life with honor and dig- 
nity. 

The affectionate wife 

The tender mother 

The exemplary widow 

The pious friend." 

Col. John'* Gorham died in London, England, of smallpox, 
while there prosecuting his claim for expenses in the Louisburg 
expedition ; and he was probably buried there.

Dr. Jeremiah Barker was the son of Samuel

Howland. Patience"^ Rowland was a daughter 
of Jabez* and Patience (Stafford) Howland. 
Jabez^ Howland was a son of Bethia^ Thacher by 
her husband Jabez Howland; Bethia^ Thacher 
was a daughter of Antony- and Elizabeth (Jones) 
Thacher. Hence we see that both Dr. Barker and 
his first wife were both descendants of Antony* 
Thacher. Dr. Jeremiah Barker was educated by 
Rev. Mr. Cutler of the Congregational Church in 
Scituate, Mass., from whom he received a thor- 
ough education in the classics ; he never entered 
college. He went to Cambridge, Mass., and 
studied medicine and surgery under Dr. Lincoln 
of that town, and served as a surgeon in the 
Revolutionary War. At close of that War he 
went to Barnstable where he practiced a while, 
and then removed to Gorham, Maine, under the 
influence of his brother-in-law, William^ Gorham, 
who had settled there. After a few years he re- 
moved to Falmouth (now Portland), Maine, 
where he resided until 1808, when, after his last

parties unjustly charged him with heing a Tory, because he would

Deacon Stephen Clap (born March 4th, 1670; died Decem-

(born August 6th, 1678) of Scituate, Mass. 

Children: None. 

The Clapp Family, p. 114, says that the above "Stephen Clapp 
probably never married, and if he did, had no issue. There was 
a Stephen Clapp who married Mrs. Mary Gorham in Barnstable, 
October 24th, 1734, who may have been he." In absence of proof 
to the contrary I have assumed the above Stephen Clapp to have 
been the one who married Mary^ Gorham.

1717, and died , 1804, aged 87. 

Mehitable (Davis) Hersey married, second, October 21st, 1744, 
to John Russell (son of Dr. John Russell of Barnstable), by whom 
she had one son, John Russell, baptized September 4th, 1748. John 
Russell, Sr., died August ist, 1748. 

Mehitable (Davis) Hersey-Russell married, third. May 9th,

Lothrop). Daniel Davis, Senior, died April 22nd, 1799, aged 85 
years, 6 months and 13 days. 

Dr. James Hersey settled as a physician in Barnstable and pur- 
chased a part of the Dimmock estate, which included the ancient 
stone house built by Elder Thomas Dimmock. A tradition existed 
that he lived in a house that stood east of stone house, but Amos 
Otis thought it more probable that he lived in the stone house which 
he owned and which at that time was in good repair. He did not 
receive a college education but was none the less a well educated 
man, and Dr. James Thacher, who studied medicine under him, 
speaks of him as a skilful physician who had acquired an exten- 
sive practice at that time in Barnstable County.

1912.] Early New York Church Records. An Official Announcement. 20I 



EARLY NEW YORK CHURCH RECORDS. 
An Official AnnouncementI 



By Walter Kenneth Griffin, of the Publication Committee. 



In the January, 1912, number of the A^. Y. Genealogical and Biographical 
Record i\ppe-a.x- notices of the addition by gift to the Library of the bocicty, of 
type-written copies of five Early New York Church Records — those of the 
Protestant Reformed Dutch Church of the " Boght," (1784-1896), now of 
Cohoes, Saratoga Co., N. Y.; of the ist .Methodist Church of White Plains, 
Westchester Co., N. Y.; of the baptismal entries, 444 in number, of the Dutch 
Church of New Utrecht, L. I., (1718-1741). transcribed from the original Dutch 
script; of the Dutch Church of Oyster iiay, L. I., (1741-1834), and of the Dutch 
Church of Kakiat, Rockland Co., N. Y., (1774-1864), being a transcript of the 
1st Church Book, together with the "private" marriage records of two of the 
earlier ministers, Rev. George Brinckerhoff,(i793-i8o8). until recently supposed 
lost, and of Rev. James Desmarest, ( 1809-1864), including the marriages cele- 
brated by him at the Secession Church after he had left the old Kakiat Church. 

It is not commonly known that Mr. Huntting, author oi the History of the 
Little Nine Fanners, has presented to the Society the original unique record of 
the Lutheran Church of Pine Plains, often called the Round 'lop Church, 
Dutchess Co., N. Y., (1760-1787). 

Since these gifts, hereinafter in a later article to be more fully described, 
and as the result of the personal investigations.at hisown expense, of Mr. Royden 
W. Vosburgh, a member, there have been loaned to tlie Society in the spirit of 
most courteous and intelligent co-operation on the part of the church authorities, 
and for the purpose of copying, the original records, never published and 
never copied, of the I^rotestant Reformed Dutch Church of Taghanick (West 
Copake), Livingston Manor, Columbia Co., N. Y., (1783-1864), and of St. Thomas 
Evangelical Lutlieran Church of Churchtown (Claverack I'ownship), Columbia 
Co., N. Y., (1760-1905). 

The last two records (not included in the records copies of which were 
collected by Mr. Burhans in the preparation of the Burhans' Genealogy), are 
invaluable, not only because of the fullness of their entries, but also because 
the consistorial and other minutes contain many items for the historian. The 
early ignorant treatment of the insane, for example, is shown by the Church- 
town entry of the death in 1840 of " Mrs. Patience Stickels, insane for 8 or 10 
years. Burned to death in the night in the house in which she was chained." 
And the earlier animosity against all connected with freemasonry cannot be 
better illustrated than by the minister's own note, that in 1796 there was at 
Churchtown no celebration of the Communion (" Abend-mahl''), "because tlie 
congregation had been lead into the error either that the minister was drunk, 
or that because of his connection with the Freemasons he was in league with 
the devil." 

The Taghanick l^ecord fills some 130 type-written pages in the copy, and 
includes some 2, ;oo baptismal entries, a few marriages and deaths, a full list 
of members, and consistorial minutes. Tlie names, Dutch, German, Huguenot, 
French, l^nglish, Scotch, etc., supplement all records of Columbia Co., and fill 
many hitherto impossible gaps. 

The Churchtown Lutheran Record (1760-1905) is the more welcome because 
for unknown reasons few of the early Lutheran Churches have so far been in- 
cluded in public copies. It consists of 3 volumns. Vol. 2, ( 1802-1843), is an 
official copy of the original, with some omissions and some additions, requiring 
patient comparison with so much of the original as yet exists, all having been 
forwarded to the Society. Most of the original Marriage and Death Lists in the 
original Vol. 2 are mutilated or lost, and the copied Vol. 2 gives none of them. 
Careful work will probably supply these, at least in part. Vol. 3 contains an 
extensive Marriage Record, (1835-1905;, and a Funeral List, (1835-1904), 



202 Society Proceedings. [April, 

which fortunately generally gives the ages at death. The earlier records are 
in German, the Taghanick records being up to about l8oo in Dutch. Person- 
ally I have been asked to supervise the transcription and translation. I hope 
the results will be trustworthy. 

These gifts and loans illustrate the growing (recognition that neither history 
nor genealogies can be made accurate except through public facilities in ex- 
amination of the early Church Records. With the early settlers the Church 
was the social and community center. Round it revolved all the life then 
deemed worth record, and in the Church Records alone are to be found, espec- 
ially in rural communities, the proofs of earlv settlement and organization, the 
names of early settlers, the trend of emigration, the growth of families, and 
their marriages and deaths. Such records are no longer private. They are 
the public history of the founders of our state and nation. 

Natural local pride, and the recollection of such events as the Albany 
Capitol fire, oppose the concentration of original records in any central 
repository, equally inconvenient to all. The original records themselves, 
written frequently with watered or diluted ink, and sometimes on paper not 
fitted for the life everlasting, should not be submitted to casual, ignorantly 
careless, or alas, criminally envious examination. Eventually, all original 
records will doubtless be photo-lithographed and thus reproduced with more 
than Chinese fidelity. Meanwhile, and with what is at present believed to be 
a comprehensive understanding of the situation, the Society asks the aid of all 
its Members and Correspondents so that the fullest possible information may 
be obtained as to the existence and whereabouts of all early Church Records, 
also of all Marriage Records, often held by the descendants of early ministers — 
they being originally considered as the ministers' private property — or included 
in the Registers of local Justices of the Peace. 

The Society will then communicate with the Church Authorities or other 
owners of the records, and these being willing, will accept the temporary cus- 
tody of the originals, to be used for no other purpose than the prompt making 
of type-written duplicate copies, by expert transcribers, and carefully compared 
by competent scholars, and where necessary translated in addition to the re- 
production of the original. Of these copies one will remam the property of the 
Church or other owner of the record, one will remain in the Society's library, 
and where other public spirited Societies may join and share the expense, the 
remaining copies, say two in all, will be deposited with them for public use, and 
for preservation forever. 

This far reaching plan, begun with the Taghanick and Churchtown 
Records, has already resulted, through the able transcribing work of Miss M. 
Cohen, of the Society, in clear, accurate copies, on good enduring bond paper, 
in type-writing, and will undoubtedly finally result in a series of exact copies, 
carefully edited, and probably indexed, and after full opportunity of correction, 
editing, notes and references, will certainly aid publication, and so give to the 
public the accurate records of early times. Such a result invites to its culmin- 
ation the co-operation and assistance of all the Churches, and of all students of 
the history, individual and public, of the beginning of our nation. 

Many private copies exist, several original and supposedly long lost 
records are held as heirlooms in private hands, many Societies have originals 
in their custody, almost unknown except to the members. All who can help 
are invited to aid.

BOOK NOTICES. 



Editoriai. Note:— The New York Genealogical and Biof;raphical Society solicits as 
donations to its Library all newly published works on Genealogy, History and Biography, as well 
as all works on Town, County and Slate History, or works embodying information regarding the 
Vital Records of any and all localities. It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections 
of its library any and all manuscript compilations which bear upon the above mentioned topics. 

In consideration of such donations the works so presented to tlie Society will beat once 
placed upon the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The 
New Yokk GknI':alogical anu liiot;nAPHiCAL Kkcohu, each donation of such character, 
whether in printed or manuscriiit form, will be reviewed under the head of "Book Notices" and 
a copy of The Rrcord containing the review will be sent to the donor. 

The Society does ;/o/ solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to 
the above mentioned subji'cls, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material 
which does not bear directly upon its recognized sphere of usefulness. 

Donations for review in the January issue of I'hh Kh.cokd should be delivered to the 
Society before December ist of the previous year; for the April issue, before March 1st; for the 
July issue before June ist; and for the October issue, before September ist. 

All donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public 
to their good points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the 
ititerest of the genealogical student would expect from the editorial staff of The Record.

The Genealogical and Biographical Record is glad to welcorne this splen- 
did new publication. Its field is the preservation of historical and genealogical 
data of a most interesting county in a historical sense, and this copy is a promise 
of valuable service along these lines. We wish to call the attention of all 
libraries and individuals interested in these matters, especially the Revolution- 
ary history of New Jersey, to this magazine. 

Roster of Saint Andrew's Society of the State of New York

American Revolution. 1756-1783- Compiled by William M. MacBean, Secre- 
tary of the Society. Small quarto, pp. 90, cloth. New York, 191 1, 

The biographical data of this book furnishes valuable material for students 
of the Colonial period in New York. A great many Scotch officers in the 
English Army became members of Saint Andrew's Society, and their stories are 
verv interesting, leading us back to the mother country. Many famous Scotch 
families are represented in this roster, which will appeal to many readers and 
searchers outside of the Society.

manner for fortifications, streets and public buildings. 

Burning of Harvard Hall, 1764; and Its Consequences. By 
Francis Apthorp Foster. Pamphlet, 8vo, pp. 43. ' 

On January 24th, 1764, Harvard Hall, one of the few buildings of the young 
University, went up in flames at midnight after a session of the Great and Gen- 
eral Court of Massachusetts. The State generously provided, at no small cost 
for another building and recompensed those who had lost property in the fire, 
including the college butler and several students. 

The graphic quality of Mr. Foster's pamphlet is heightened in telling the 
story by the chronological use of the original records. Thus, as in Carlyle's 
Life of Cromwell, told by his letters and speeches, we get an intimate view of 
times and customs which is by no means the least valuable side of this article. 

The students who recollected their losses with such minute memory repre- 
sent some of the oldest New England families. Among the most interesting of 
them was Nicliolas Pike, afterwards the author of a notable Arithmetic, and an 
honored school teacher. Pike, Harvard 1766, had a third of a barrel of cider in 
his chambers in Harvard Hall, as did another student, for the destruction of 
which the State allowed and paid handsomely. 

Fort LouiSBURG:— Its Two Sieges and Site Today. Address before 
the Society of Colonial Wars in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. By Louis 
Barcroft Runk, Esq. Pamphlet, 8vo, pp. 34. 

This address is an engaging sketch of the two successful sieges of Louis- 
burg, in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The inimitable Parkman is Mr. Runk's his- 
torical authority, to whom he punctiliously acknowledges his debt. 

The wonderful success of William Pepperrell and Peter Warren shows 
how much perseverance and audacity are followed by good luck in warfare. 
The victory was a joy and incentive to pride in all the Colonies, and as such 
appeals to their descendants today. The second capture of Louisburg reflects 
less glory on Provincial arms, but was a glorious victory and an important step 
in the progress of the lamented Wolfe, who lived and died in the love of honor 
and military glory. 

Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Illinois. 
Publication No. 3, quarto, half morocco, illustrated, pp. 301. Chicago, 
Oliphant Printing Co., 1911, 

This handsome volume has furnished a welcome task to the reviewer. Of 
prime importance to the Mayflower Descendants of Illinois, it will be of wider 
interest to genealogical seekers after Mayflower descent. 

The reader is impressed with the independent story which the many and 
wonderfully good illustrations tell. Views of hallowed Scrooby, Austerfield, 
Plymouth, Old and New, and Leyden are scattered with lavish hand through 
the book. We are reminded how much modern historical literature is enriched 
by good photographic illustrations. The older Mayflower and New Plymouth 
books told their noble story well, but their simple sketches conveyed no such 
picture to the mind as the wonderfully fine and profuse illustrations of this book. 

The old and ever new story of the inception of the Pilgrim Separatist 
movement in England, the removal to Holland and thence to America 
is sketched briefly and carefully. The historical matter which includes the 
story of the discovery of Governor Bradford's Manuscript makes the book a 
worthy addition to the literature on this subject. The binding is splendid and 
the paper and all appointments are first class. The reviewer turns with a sigh 
of regret from this delightful book.

fifteen years with the intention of publishing a comprehensive history of the 
descendants of Adam Mottof Hempstead. Like all of Mr. Harris' work this 
little book of 62 pages shows the painstaking care and completeness of the 
trained genealogist, and it is hoped that the further results of his fifteen years' 
of research may soon find their way into print.

Vol. XLIII. NEW YORK, JULY, 1912. No. 3. 



EDMUND ABDY HURRY, M. A., LL.B. 



By Tobias A. Wright. 



Mr. Hurry was born in New York City, Aug. 8, 1839, and 
died at his home, 122 East 39th Street, April 8, 1912. 

He graduated from Columbia College, New York, in i860, 
and in 1862 from Columbia College Law School, receiving his 
degrees from this institution. In 1S63 Mr. Hurry was appointed 
Secretary and aid to his uncle, Captain Homer C. Blake of the 
United States Navy, then commanding the U. S. S. Euiaw, and 
it was while in this service when in Pensacola harbor on the 
Eutaw that he bore dispatches to the Hartford, Admiral Farra- 
gut's flagship, at the time a council of war was being held on the 
latter vessel to determine the course to be pursued by the fleet 
in the proposed attack upon Mobile. After more than a year in 
this service he was obliged to retire in consequence of fever 
contracted in the Gulf of Mexico. Returning to New York he 
became active in professional and social affairs, and in 1868 
married Emily Ashton Renwick, daughter of William Rhine- 
lander Renwick, and great-granddaughter of William Renwick 
(the first of the family in America), and his wife Jane (Jaffray.s) 
Renwick, who is said to have been the heroine of Burns' Blue- 
eyed Lassie, and whose father was Rev. Andrew Jaffrays, D.D., 
of Lockmaben, Scotland. 

While maintaining a residence in New York City, and a 
country place on Barclay Heights, Saugerties-on-the-Hudson, 
New York, he spent much time abroad, travelling in many 
countries. Though ever a patriotic and loyal American, he felt 
great pride in his distinguished English and Irish ancestry, and 
devoted much time compiling and publishing in 1900 an Addenda 
to Vae Memorials of the Family of Hjcrry, published in England 
in 1873, in which his Hurry ancestors are traced back to the 
sixteenth century. The American branch of the family descends 
from Samuel Hurry, third son of John Hurry of Liverpool, 
eldest son of John Hurry of Great Yarmouth, who was the 
third son of Thomas Hurry of the same place, the eldest son of 
Thomas Hurry with whom the pedigree begins.

2 lO Edmund Abdy Hurry, M. A., LL.B. [July, 

This Samuel Hurry, the grandfather of the subject of this 
sketch, was born at his father's residence in Liverpool, England, 
Nov. 24, 1778, and in 1795, when but seventeen years of age, 
came to America and settled in Philadelphia, Pa., where he 
married Eliza Ann, eldest daughter of William Whiteside. 
Their son Edmund (Cobb) Hurry, born at Philadelphia, Sept. 17, 
1807, married April 25, 1838, Elizabeth Maria, second daughter of 
James Flanagan and Elizabeth Myers McKean, his wife, of 
New York. James Flanagan was the son of Christopher Flana- 
gan of Dublin, Ireland, who left that city in 1786 and settled in 
New York and became one of the largest importers of books in 
the United States. He was also a public speaker of note. 

The subject of this memorial was the eldest son of Edmund 
(Cobb) Hurry and Elizabeth Maria Hurry. Of the seven chil- 
dren of Edmund Abdy and his wife Emily Ashton Renwick 
Hurry: Edith Renwick is unmarried; Bessie Crosby died in in- 
fancy; Helen Schuyler married William V. Draper, and has one 
child, John Haggerty; Renwick Clifton married Lucy Washington 
Morss, and has three children, Renwick Washington, Lucy 
Rhinelander, and Emily Clarkson; Mary Crosby, married, ist, 
Walton C. Peckham, and had one child. May Hurry; married 2d, 
James H. Colfelt; Emily Ashton married Louis G. Smith, and 
has one son, Crosby Tuttle; Rutgers Ives married Aline Virginia 
Kent, no children. 

Mr. Hurry joined the Society which publishes this magazine 
in 1873, and in date of membership was with one exception (the 
venerable Dr. Ellsworth Eliot) the oldest member. He early be- 
came active in the Society and at different periods filled the 
office of Secretary and Trustee, and served on many important 
committees. He had also been a vestryman of Tnnity Episcopal 
Church at Saugerties, N. Y., a director of the United States Fire 
Insurance Company, Trustee of the New York Eastern Dispen- 
sary, Treasurer of the Babies' Hospital, New York, member of 
the St. Nicholas Society, St. George's Society, of New York, 
Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Geographical Society, 
Union League Club,University Club and other social organizations. 

It was as a fellow member and worker in the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society that the writer came to 
know Mr. Hurry, as a gentleman of the old school, dignified but 
kind and genial, with a rare quality of making himself agreeable 
to his associates and lovable to his friends. 



WALTER KENNETH GRIFFIN, B.Sc, London, B. A., LL.B. 



In the death of Mr. Griffin which occurred on April 17, 1912, 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society loses a 
valuable member and one of its most able and conscientious 
workers. The archives of the Society have been enriched by his 
many contributions of manuscript records and the readers of this 
magazine will remember him as the compiler of the extensive 
Dutcher Family Records.

THACHER-THATCHER GENEALOGY. 



By John R. Totten, 

lember of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society and New England 
Historic-Genealogical Society. 



(Continued from Vol. XLIIL. p. 188, of the Record.) 

127. Major General Joseph" Gorham (Mary* Thacher, Hon. 
Col. John,^ Antony,- Rev. Peter^), born May 29th, 1725; died 

, subsequent to April 29th, 1790; he lived in Barnstable, 

Mass., and removed to Annapolis, Nova Scotia, in 1750; he 
was a soldier and a RoyaHst in the Revolutionary War; 

he married , at , to Ann Spry, a lady of English 

descent by whom he had the following: — 

Children, 11 (Gorham), six sons and five daughters. 
Joseph", 
William^. 
Amherst", 
iv. James Wolf". 
John". 
"Benjamin". 
Mary". 
Anna". 
Lydia". 
Abigail". 

Charlotte Spry," born ; died , 1807; 

married, first, , at , to ; married, 

second, Sir John Jackson, by whom she had, 

amongst others, the following child: 

I. Welby Brown'^ Jackson, who married and had 

a son, Louis d'Aguilar* Jackson, born April 

20th, 1804. 

Joseph' Gorham was a distinguished soldier ; he was perhaps 
with his father at Louisburg in 1745; he was a Lieutenant of 
Rangers under Governor Cornwallis in 1749; and a Captain of 
Rangers under General Amherst in 1758-9. About this latter date 
he went to England to endeavor to have the Rangers put in the 
establishment of the Regular troops ; and was the bearer of a letter 
from General Amherst to Governor Lawrence, dated April 30th, 
1760, from which the following is an extract: — 

"I send you this by Captain Gorham, who is lately returned 
from England, where he has been to endeavor to get rank and to 
get his company put in the establishment ; concerning wlij^ Lord 
Barrington has desired my opinion which I have given him as far 
as relates to Captain Gorham personally, and I make no doubt but 
he will be promoted, as he is very deserving of it. I have as yet

suspended my judgment in regard to the establishment of his Com- 
pany. His is certainly the best I have seen of the Rangers ; but the 
best, according to me, is no extraordinary thing. However, if you 
think that the augmenting of that compaiiy, or the establishment 
of two, would be of any real service or advantage to the Province 
of Nova Scotia, I shall upon your answer recommend the affair to 
the Secretary of War." 

The establishment of Gorham's Rangers as regular troops un- 
der Joseph Gorham as Major Commandant dates from September 
25th, 1761. In 1763 his troops were disbanded; and on September 
of that year he again went to England, and was appointed a mem- 
ber of the Halifax Council, taking his seat on December 20th, 1766. 
In 1770 he became Lieutenant Governor of Placentia in Newfound- 
land. In May, 1772, he became a Lieutenant Colonel and in June 
of that year vacated his seat in the Halifax Council. In 1776 he 
was in command of Fort Cumberland. May 16, 1782, he became a 
Colonel; and on April 29th, 1790, he was appointed a Major General, 
dying soon after, probably. 

Hon. George Thacher, in his MSS. Thacher Genealogy, gives 
the first two children of Joseph^ Gorham, viz : — Joseph" and Wil- 
liam," as one child named Joseph William" ; but Amos Otis gives 
them as I have recorded them, the sons being grouped in sequence 
and the daughters likewise, with no dates of their respective births. 
Ann Spry was a sister of William Spry, Judge of the English 
Court of Admiralty at Halifax, Nova Scotia. They both came to 
Nova Scotia with another sister, Emily, arriving at Halifax, Sep- 
tember 25th, 1764.

Rev. Josiah^ Crocker was the friend of Whitfield and in 
some traits resembled him. At the early age of 15 he entered 
College and was ordained at the age of 23. He was of an ardent 
temperament ; zealous and earnest, yet tender and persuasive in 
his manner. Like other zealous men, he was not always cautious 
in his expressions. He had many warm friends and some enemies. 
His call to Taunton was not unanimous, and there were always 
some who opposed him. He was dismissed from his charge De- 
cember ist, 1774, but continued to live in Taunton until his death. 
His earnest and persuasive manner drew together a large audience 
when it was known that he was to preach. His granddaughter 
Hannah M. Crocker was the author of the "Rights of Woman," 
published in 1818. 

A memorial tablet has been erected to commemorate the loca- 
tion of the house of Rev. Josiah* Crocker, 1742- 1774, on the 
southeast corner of Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Taunton, Mass. He 
was the sixth minister of Taunton,

eral Court of Massachusetts, and was often there employed on 
committees where maturity of judgment and experience gained by 
careful attention to the interests of the commonwealth were par- 
ticularly required. He was distinguished by talents of solid, judi- 
cious and useful character, rather than those of a brilliant and 
showy type. He held during the great part of his life various 
offices in his town and county. He was one of the committee of 
safety during the Revolutionary War; and for 15 years was one 
of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas for Barnstable 
County. He was also a member of the conventions for forming 
and adopting the State and Federal Constitution. His gravestone 
is thus inscribed: "To the memory of the Hon. David Thacher, 
Esq., who having served his generation in many important public 
stations with honor and fidelity, died November 9th, 1801, aged 
seventy-two years. By a constant practice of social virtues, he 
rendered himself greatly beloved and respected in the various walks 
of domestic life- Reader, wouldst thou be honored in life and 
lamented in death, go and do likewise. Also erected to the memory 
of Mrs. Abigail Thacher, widow of the Hon. David Thacher, Esq., 
who died April 25th, 1803, aged seventy-six years. She was greatly 
esteemed as a Christian and a friend."

February 2nd, 1732-3. He resided at Yarmputh, Mass., 
where he was a deacon and held the ofifice of Lieutenant in 
in the Military Service ; he was a Tavern Keeper. He died 
at Yarmouth, Mass., January 19th, 1802, and was buried 
there in old cemetery {Freeman's Cape Cod, Vol. H., pp. 
229-30, says that he died January 19th, 1809, aged 69; and so 
also does Alden's Epitaphs, Vol. L, p. 127; but as he was 
born in 1732-3 and died aged 69, he must have died in 1802; 
therefore Freeman and Alden are incorrect). His tombstone 
inscription does not appear in Gravestone Records of Yar- 
mouth, Mass., prepared by Thomas W. Thacher and Stanley 
\V. Smith, and published in 1906 by the Mass. Society, M. 
F. D., and therefore 1 presume it was destroyed between the 
compilation of Alden's Epitaphs and the year 1906. He mar- 
ried, first, at Yarmouth, Mass., February 22nd, 1758-9, to 
Desire Crowell, born Yarmouth, May 30th, 1736; died at 
Yarmouth, February 27th, 1788, "in her 52nd year," and was 
buried there in old cemetery ; gravestone. She was a daugh- 
ter of Ebenezer Crowell and his wife Mary (Gorham) 
Crowell (born Yarmouth, August 20th, 1708, daughter of 
John and Ann (Brown) Gorham of Yarmouth) of Yarmouth, 
Mass. He married, second, at Yarmouth, Mass., January ist, 

1789, to Mary (Miller) Hedge, born , 1744 (see age at

Miller, and widow of Deacon Isaac Hedge, according to 
Freeman's Cape Cod, Vol. H., p. 230, and widow of Deacon 
Josiah Hedge, according to Alden s Epitaphs, Vol. L, p. 125-6. 
I am inclined to think Freeman is correct.

There is a remarkable coincidence existing between the records 
of Deacon Josiah^ Thacher and that of his uncle Deacon Josiah* 
Thacher (No. 38). The latter was born April 26th, 1667, and 
died May 12th, 1701 (or 1702) ; the former was born February 
2nd, iyz-'Z^ ^""^1 died January 19th, 1802; they were both deacons 
in the same church, and they both had for a wife a Mary Hedge. 
This coincidence has heretofore puzzled antiquarians and has caused 
a confusion of the two Josiahs. 

Deacon** Josiah Thacher was chosen as a deacon, May i8th, 
1801. His tavern stood upon the site of the Congregational par- 
sonage in Yarmouth. According to a paper written by his grand- 
son, Prentiss^ Thacher, he was married in 1758. 

From. Aldcn's Epitaphs we obtain the following inscription 
taken from the gravestone of Deacon Josiah^ Thacher, and those 
of his two (2) wives. The gravestone of Deacon Josiah^ Thacher 
has since the compilation of Aldcn's Epitaphs, been broken, and at 
last accounts (according to George Winslow Thacher of Yarmouth- 
port, Mass.) was lying on the ground and likely at any time to 
disappear ; and from the fact that the printed records of the Old 
Burying Ground at Yarmouth makes no mention of said stone, it 
would appear that it had now vanished. 

"In memory of Deacon Josiah Thacher, who died January 19th, 
1809, in his 69th year." 
"Look down upon the sacred spot and see 
What death can do for you as well as me ; 
Sweet bosom friend, your falling sand is nigh. 
Children, prepare, 'tis God that calls on high. 
Neighbors and friends alike must be the same. 
Prepare for death in time, for God doth reign." 
The date 1809 was copied incorrectly by Alden, or else it 
was recorded incorrectly on the gravestone, as he was born in 
1732-3 and died in 1802, aged 69. 

'Tn memory of Mrs. Desire Thacher, wife of Deacon Josiah 
Thacher, who died February 27th, 1788, in the 52nd year of her 
age. Also in memory of Mrs. Mary Thacher, his last wife, and 
formerly widow of Deacon Josiah Hedge. She died January 15th, 
181 1, aged years."

I9I2.] The Doughty Family of Long Island. 273 



THE DOUGHTY FAMILY OF LONG ISf.AND. 



By Ethan Allen Doty. 



In offering this record of the descendants of Rev. Francis 
Doughty, the emigrant to Taunton, Mass., and Maspeth, Long 
Island, I am aware that it is by no means complete, but it fur- 
nishes a foundation and a frame work on which any one inter- 
ested may build a more satisfactory record. 

The items here given were collected while I was gathering 
material for "The Doty — Doten Family in America." Members 
of both the Doty and Doughty families frequently settled in the 
same town, and lived neighbors, though seldom intermarrying. 
This was notably the case on the north shore of Long Island, in 
Westchester Co., Dutchess Co. and Saratoga Co., in New York 
State, in New Jersey and in Maine. To keep my Doty records 
correct, I was obliged to take these of the Doughtys also. 

There were other emigrants of Doughtys besides Rev, Fran- 
cis Doughty. 

James Doughty was a resident of Plymouth, Mass., and of 
Scituate, where he married in 1649 Lydia, daughter of Humphrey 
Turner. Also a Thomas Douty born 1620-5, was in Berwick, 
Maine, before 1660. 

Both of the above families are represented by descendants in, 
or emigrated from Maine. 

Still another family largely represented in lower and Western 
New Jersey, claim descent from an Edward Doughty who came 
as a preceptor to the children of " Lady Moody" and marrying 
Millicent, perhaps the daughter of James and Rosana De Kraft, 
became the ancestor of a numerous family in New Jersey, Vir- 
ginia and Ohio. 

Of these I have but scattering records, but these are at the 
service of any persons interested. 

I. Rev. Francis Doughty was the son of a Bristol, (England) 
Alderman. He had been Vicar of Sodbury, Gloucester, Eng. 
(See English Colonization of America, by Edward D. Neill, Lon- 
don, 1 87 1.) 

From Genealogical Gleanings in England, by Henry F. Waters. 

(Will) " Francis Doughtie of Hempsteed in the parish of 
Oldsbury and County and Diocese of Gloucester, gent., 16 May, 
1634, proved 31 October, 1634. 

To my son Francis my white horse or nag. To Spencer 
Achley, my daughter Frances' son, twenty shillings, to be paid 
by my executrix within six months next after my decease. To 
John Dauyes, the son of my daughter Margaret, ten shillings, to 
be paid in like manner. To the three children of my son Fran- 
cis, that is to say, Mary, his daughter and Francis and Eliah, his 
sons, thirty shillings to be paid in like manner. The rest of my 
goods, moveable and unmoveable whatsoever, I give and be-

queath to my daughter Elizabeth (excepting what I have passed 
by my deed, bearing date 15th May 1634 made to certain uses to 
Humfrey Hooke, Alderman of the City of Bristol, Thomas 
Lloyd of the same, Adam Baynhami of Yate gent, and William 
Maye of Cherefield gent, this excepted) and I make my daughter 
Elizabeth my whole and sole executrix etc." 

One of the witnesses was Fr, Doughtie, minister. 

Mr. Waters adds: 

"The above will and the deed to Humphrey Hooke and others, 
to which it refers, gave rise to a great contention in New Eng- 
land, as appears from Lechford's Note Book, pp. 133-5, i37. 171-3 
and 256 (I refer to the pages of the printed book) Elizabeth 
Doughtie, the daughter and sole executrix of the above testator, 
became the wife of William Cole in the parish of Chew Magna, in 
the County of Somerset, gentleman (as he calls himself in a bill 
of complaint to the Gov., Council and Assistants of the Jurisdic- 
tion of Massachusetts Bay) and brother of John Cole of Farring- 
ton, Somerset, Yeoman, who made a deposition about Hempsteed 
Farm in 1639. William and Elizabeth Cole were then in New 
England, as was also her brother Francis Doughty, who at that 
time called himself a planter of Dorchester in New England. He 
was called a clerk in the bill of complaint by William Cole and 
his wife, and seems to have been a minister at Taunton, Mass., 
and afterwards to have removed to Long Island." 

About 1637 Rev. Francis Doughty, with others, purchased 
from the Plymouth Colony a tract of land at Taunton, Mass. He 
is reported to have come to Massachusetts 1639, and settled at 
Taunton, preaching there, but having some difficulties with the 
people he removed to Maspeth (now Newtown) on Long Island 
in New York State where we find him 1642. The Court Records 
and Acts of Legislature of Massachusetts Colony show that he 
had a lawsuit with his sister Elizabeth, wife of William Cole, ex- 
tending through many years. 

In Magazine of Amer. History, Jan., 1885, is an article on 
" Puritanism in New York" by Rev. Chas. A. Briggs, D.D., in 
which occurs " The Third Puritan minister (in State of N. Y.) 
was Francis Doughty. He had probably been Vicar of Sodbury, 
Gloucester, England, where he was silenced for Nonconformity. 
He emigrated to Taunton, Mass., 1637." (Then follows an ac- 
count of his differences there with the Church leading to his ex- 
pulsion with his wife and child. This is taken from Thomas 
Lechford, Plain Dealing, 1642, p. 40.) Doughty secured the con- 
veyance of Mespat (near Newtown), L. I., with the view of estab- 
lishing a Presbyterian colony there. The settlement was begun 
in 1642, but the Indian War broke up the colony in 1643, and the 
minister and flock went to Manhattan Island for shelter during 
the war. He became the first Puritan, and, indeed, Presbyterian 
minister in New York City. He ministered here from 1643 to 
1648 and was supported by voluntary contributions from the 
Puritans and Dutch of the city. He also preached at Flushing 
for a while. 



igi2.] The Dough/y Fmniiy of Long Island. 275 

"Owing to the failure of the colonj' Govs. Kieft and Stuyvesant 
sought to recover the claime upon Mespat, but Doughty dechned 
to restore it. He was at last glad to escape from the wrath of 
Stuyvesant and fled to Maryland, where he preache^d to the Puri- 
tans for many years." 

An intelligent correspondent of the Brooklyn (New York) 
Daily Eagle, signing himself an " Old Brooklynite," in the issue 
of June 7th, 1891, says: 

" The first notice of Rev. Francis Doughty is found in the an- 
nals of Taunton and reads as follows: 

[' Cohannet, alias Taunton, is in Plymouth patent. There is 
a church gathered there of late, and some ten or twenty of the 
church, the rest excluded. Master Hooke, pastor; Master Street, 
teacher. One Master Doughty (Rev. Francis) opposed the 
gathering of the church there, alleging that according to the cov- 
enant of Abraham all men's children that were of baptized 
parents, and so Abraham's children, ought to be baptized, and so 
spake in public, or to that effect, which led to a disturbance, and 
the ministers spake to the magistrate to order him out, the 
magistrate commanded the constable who dragged Master 
Doughty out of the assembly.'] 

" But for this disagreeable incident the Doughty family proba- 
bly would never have played their part in the history of Brook- 
lyn. Much excitement followed the church wrangle, and it re- 
sulted in about one hundred families leaving the Cohannet 
colony and following the fortunes of Mr. Doughty. By this it 
was determined to leave the English colonies and apply to the 
Dutch for a grant of land upon which they could settle and enjoy 
that freedom of conscience which the straight laced Puritans de- 
manded for themselves, but were unwilling to accord to anyone 
else. With his wife and children Doughty proceded to the Island 
of Aquetneck, the present site of the city of Newport, R. I., 
where his friends soon joined him. A regular association was 
organized and Mr. Doughty sent to New York to interview Gov- 
ernor Kieft. So successful was this visit that the Dutch authori- 
ties immediately granted Mr. Doughty a tract of land of 13,332 
acres at Mespat, which embraced nearly the whole of Newtown, 
Maspeth and a part of Flushing. Here the Doughtyites settled 
in the year 1642, and from their efforts a successful colony was 
soon established. Indeed, its success was so great that it excited 
the jealousy of Kieft, as will presently be seen. The Doughty 
patent is recorded in the Secretary of State's office at Albany, 
book of patents, C. G., p. 49. It bears date March 28, 1642. Mr. 
Doughty seems to have been a chronic objector and a man of 
most decided opinions. Preaching to his flock weekly he took 
occasion to severely criticise certain acts of Governor Kieft's, 
and trouble was the result. The director and Council of the 
New Amsterdam colony in April, 1647, rescinded the Doughty 
patents, dividing the property among members of the association, 
leaving Mr. Doughty only his bouwery and the lands he had in 
possession. The Doughty bouwery occupied the land on the east 
of Flushing Bay, now known as Stevens' Point. 



2 76 The Doughty Family of Long Island. [July, 

"To the decision of Kieft Mr. Doughty strongly objected, re- 
garding it as not only unjust, but in direct violation of his patent, 
therefore he appealed from the sentence, which offended Kieft 
who had previously cut off the right of appeal to the courts of 
Holland, and, telling Doughty that his* judgment was final and 
absolute, the despotic governor fined the defenseless clergyman 
%\o and locked him up for twenty-four hours in the common jail. 
Discouraged at this, Mr. Doughty requested the director-general 
of New Netherland 'that as he had lived and done duty a long 
time without suitable support and as his land was now confis- 
cated' he might be permitted to take ship for the West Indies or 
the Netherlands. The request was refused, as the director-gen- 
eral had no desire to have his acts laid before the diet. Later 
Mr. Doughty was minister at the Flushing church, where he 
preached a year for the sum of 600 guilders. He finally departed 
for the ' English Virginias' in 1648." 

This is one side of the story — Doughty's side. 

The colonial records show the Dutch view of the case to be 
different. Without going into this in detail, we will simply state 
that the Dutch claimed a debt of 1,100 florins from Mr. Doughty, 
which he refused to pay. It was out of this that the trouble 
arose. The last notice of this man is found in Dr. O'Callaghan's 
Colonial Documents where it reports a commissioner sent from 
New York to Maryland colony as saying that during a visit to 
Cecil, Lord Baltimore, he met Mr. Doughty at a dinner given by 
the Maryland governor and found him " looking much the same" 
as when he last saw him in New Amsterdam and very bitter 
against the Dutch. After the burning of Mespat village by the 
Indians in 1643, Mr. Doughty sought refuge in New Amsterdam 
with all his followers. Here they resided for several years, Mr. 
Doughty purchasing property just outside the fort. Within the 
fort he established an English church and preached regularly to 
his flock. Thus the Rev. Francis Doughty was the first preacher 
in the English language in New York city — " a fact we never 
saw commented on in any history of New York." 

From the Calendar of N. Y. Hist. Mss. in the Secretary of 
State's Office at Albany, N. Y., Part I of Dutch Mss., we learn 
that 1642, March 28, a patent of 6666 (Dutch) acres of land at 
Maspeth was issued to Rev. Francis Doughty and his associates, 
page 49, vol. G. G. 

1645, June 10, Rev. Francis Doughty sued Wm. Gerritson, an 
Englishman, for libel consisting of a defamatory song against 
plaintiff and his daughter. The defendant pleaded guilty and 
was sentenced, &c., page 224, vol. 4. 

1646, March 22, Rev. Mr. Doughty appointed a referee. 

1647, Feb. 7, Wm. and Richd. Smith vs. Rev. Francis 
Doughty. Defendant ordered to declare who are his partners. 
Vol. 4, page 283. 

Soon after this probably, he removed to Maryland, where his 
brother-in-law, William Stone, was Governor. He married 
Bridget (?Stone). Children:

+ 3 ii. Francis, b. about 1630. 
+ 4 iii. Elias, b. about 1632. 

Since writing the above account of Rev. F^rancis Doughty, 
whose record was mainly obtained from official records in New 
York State and in England, I have received this further informa- 
tion through Mr. P. G. Burton of Washington, D. C, who for 
some time has been interested in the history of the Doughty 
family: 

Quoting Mr. Burton's letter it is as follows: 

*'Rev. Francis Doughty went to Northampton County,Virginia, 
in 1655 (the year that his son-in-law, Adriaen Vanderdonck died) 
and became the Rector of an Episcopal church there. He was 
apparently well thought of, and one wealthy and influential 
woman (parishioner) directed in her will that he have charge of 
the rearing of her children. 

Just what took Rev. Francis Doughty to Virginia I do not know, 
but I have a theory that the Rev. Samuel Di isius, who was a 
minister in New Amsterdam, and who was sent on a special 
mission to Virginia in December, 1653, may have had something 
to do with the move. 

It is known that Drisius, while in Virginia, preached in the 
church of which Doughty was later Rector. There is a reference 
to the choosing of Doughty in the Northampton County records, 
but I have not yet been able to get a copy of it. 

In 1658 Doughty married Ann Eaton, a widow with some 
property, and shortly after moved into Rappahannock County, 
where in 1662 he bought 200 acres of land. (In 1692 Rappahan- 
nock County was divided into what are now Essex and Rich- 
mond Counties). 

For several years Doughty was rector of two parishes, one on 
each side of the Rappahannock River. 

In the summer of 1668 he had a lengthy "argument" with two 
of his parishioners, both prominent in political and social circles. 

He refused to allow them to "communicate in the blessed or- 
dinance of the Lord's Supper" and they brought charges of non- 
conformity and scandalous living, the particular kind of scandal 
not being specified. 

The matter was before Gov. Berkeley, and referred by him to 
the County Commissioners for trial. What decision, if any, was 
reached, does not appear in any record that has survived. 

In March, 1668-9, Doughty placed his farm in the hands of 
trustees for the benefit of his wife during her lifetime, and an- 
nounced his intention of departing for " some other Countrey and 
Clymate that may prove more favorable to my aged, infirm and 
decayed body, than the said Countrey of Virginia wherein I now 
reside," his wife, however, being "unwilling to depart the said 
Countrey, she finding the same best agreeing with her health, 
besides her loathness and unwillingness to bidd farewell to her 
most deare and beloved children and to her beloved kindred and 
relacons, all or at least most of them, residing in the said Colony 
of Virginia, and the neighboring Province of Maryland."

278 The Doui^hty Faviily of Long Island. [July, 

On the same day, Rev, Francis Doug-hty deeded the reversion 
of this property to his son Enoch Doughty, who seems to have 
heretofore escaped the eye of the historian. 

Enoch Doughty died in Virginia between 1675 and 1677 and 
willed his property to his children (not named) with instructions 
to his brother Francis, who was one of the execu,tors, to sell all 
his property, because he wanted his children to move out of the 
country. 

A memorandum attached to the will seems to show that in 
1677 Francis Doughty, Jr., was in England, and among other 
things had some tobacco to sell for joint account of himself and 
his brother Enoch. 

I have found a record of Enoch Doughty in Maryland as early 
as Sept., 1658. He had then a wife, Mary, and a daughter, Joy. 
Joy Doughty was living in 1668, but I have found no record of 
the names of the other children. 

After the 18 of March, 1668-9, I find no record of Rev. Francis 
Doughty. Whether he went to Long Island and joined his son 
Elias, or went back to England, is yet to be learned. 

Ann (Eaton) Doughty died in Maryland in the spring of 
1683, and as there was quite a contest of her estate, we get a 
much better chance to know her family than usual. 

Her will left all of her property to her grand-children by her 
first and second husbands, and no mention is made of any 
Doughty. 

From the legal papers filed in connection with the suit re- 
ferred to, and from other facts of record it would seem that her 
first husband was a brother of the wife of Gov. William Stone of 
Maryland. 

It has been known for a longtime that the will of Gov. Stone 
mentions "brother-in-law, Francis Doughty," and different 
writers have explained the connection in different ways. 

It is often stated that the wife of Rev. Francis Doughty was 
Bridget Stone, usually with a question mark, as if the writer had 
grave doubts as to the accuracy of his statement. 

Others have stated that Rev. Francis Doughty's sister married 
Gov. Stone." 

It will be noted that in this statement Mr. Burton says that he 
has found a record in Maryland of Enoch Doughty as early as 
September, 1658, and that he then had a wife Mary and a daugh- 
ter Joy. Now, as Francis Doughty left Long Island in 1648 and 
that there was no reference whatever to any son Enoch, it is dif- 
ficult to explain how ten years later there could be a married son 
with children living in Maryland. It would seem as though 
there must be some other explanation of this, and this I leave 
for future investigation. 

2. Mary Doughty (daughter of Rev. Francis Doughty and 
Bridget, his wife). Married first at the Dutch Church in New 
York City, Oct. 22, 1645, Dr. Adrien Van Der Donck; he was 
known as the Younkers Van der Donck. They lived on the 
Hudson River, a few miles above New York City, at a place now 



igi2.] The Doi(^/i/y Family of Lo>tg Island. 279 

known as Yonkers, and which took its name from him. After his 
death she married Hugh O'Neale of Maryland, and removed 
there. 

3. Francis Doughty (2d above) remained at Mappeth, or New- 
town, where he married in 1660 the widow of Rev. John Moore. 
166 1, Feb. 18, he was ordered to deliver up the house of Rev. 
John Moore to the Schoolmaster Richard Mills. Child: 

5 i. Margariet. 

1661, March 9, Margariet, daughter of Franciscus Doten was 
baptized in the Dutch Church, New York City. And after this I 
find no further trace of this branch. 

4. Elias Doughty (son of Rev. Francis Doughty and Bridget, 
his wife), born in England about '1632; married in Flushing, 
Queens County, New York, about 1658-60, Sarah . 

lie first appears on record at Flushing in 1666. From the 
"Calendar of New York Historical Mss., Part 2, English," in 
Secretary of State's Office, Documentary History of New York, 
Volume 3, pages 91-99. 1673, July 28; Order issued to Lieutenant 
Willet and Cornet Doughty to send out scouts, and the next day, 
a letter from Captain Manning thanking Cornet Doughty for his 
activity. The same day a letter from Cornet Elias Doughty re- 
specting his endeavors to raise men. 

1676, October 4, Order of the Court of Assizes. Hempstead 
men to be told that whosoever act by way of combination will 
run themselves into a new pre-munire (sic) and that if Mr. Cor- 
nell, Doughty and others will not immediately settle on Long 
Island there are them that will. 

1679, March 21; Elias Doughty of Flushing writes to Secretary 
NichoUs requesting a grant of Bomams Neck, near Cow Bay, 
Long Island, with bounds of said land. 1680, April 20, Town of 
Flushing, grants to Elias Doughty 200 acres of land. 1684, Octo- 
ber 2, License to Thomas Willet, Elias Doughty, Thomas Hicks, 
Richard and John Cornwall to purchase of the Indian proprietors 
a tract of unoccupied land on east side of Cow Neck, Long 
Island. 

1683, September 29; in the Flushing list of rates, Mr. Elyas

In the records of Twentieth Street, New York City, Friends 
Meeting, it appears, Sarah Doughty, of Flushing, an Antient 
widow, died 1726. 

In records at Hemstead occur the names of Elias and wife 
Sarah Doughty, 1668-1675. 

It appears from above that Elias Doughty and Sarah his wife 
lived at Flushing and that he was a prominent, prosperous and 
highly respected resident; that he possessed considerable prop- 
erty there and in that vicinity. He probably died about 1690. 
She died 1726. She and her children were members of the 
Friends Meeting.

Jacob Doughty lived at Cow Neck, Queens County, New 
York. He and his wife were Friends and members of the Cow 
Neck Meeting, On the records of the Cow Neck Meeting, now 
in 20th Street, New York Friends' Meeting, are entered the

births of their children, and also the following entry: " Friends* 
Meeting- was held at Jacob Doughty's on Cow Neck from 1703 
till 1708 when he having removed away, Meeting was afterwards 
held at Ri. Cornwall's." He removed to Flushing, where he lived 
till 17 13. when he removed with his family to Burlington County, 
New Jersey, in which vicinity he subsequently lived. 

A deed of Daniel Whitehead is recorded at Jamaica, New 
York, dated April 28, 1699, wherein he gives a farm to his son-in- 
law Jacob Doughty and his daughter. Amy, wife of said Jacob. 
The farm was in town of Hempstead and probably was the farm 
on Cow Neck. 

17 1 6. Jacob Doughty was member of Assembly for Burling- 
ton Co., New Jersey. 

By deeds on record at Flemington, New Jersey, it appears 
that Jacob Doughty of Bethlehem, Hunterden County, New 
Jersey, conveyed March 20, 1733, to Samuel Large, Samuel Wil- 
son, John Stevenson, Edward Rockhill, and Joseph King, for the 
nominal sum of forty shillings a part of the land he bought 1729 
(which was bounded by land in possession of Daniel Doughty), 
and which they conveyed the next day to the Monthly Meeting 
of Quakers at Crosswicke, Burlington County, New Jersey. 

Jacob Doughty's will is on record at Trenton, New Jersey, 
signed July 2, 1737, and proven at Burlington, New Jersey, 
August 12, of the same year. In it, Jacob Doughty of Bethle- 
hem, Hunterden County, New Jersey, devises his estate to his 
wife Amy, giving legacies to his son Daniel and his daughter 
Deborah. 

The will of Mrs. Amy Doughty, late of Bethlehem, Hunter- 
den County, widow, is on record in Philadelphia, Pa. It is dated 
7th day of 2nd month, called April, 1742, and proved on the 2 of 
August, of same year. In it she gives legacies to her children 
and grandchildren. 

The following list of their children is furnished by Mr, 
Barclay White of Mount Holly, New Jersey, who is a lineal de- 
scendant of Jacob Doughty and who certifies that it is a correct 
copy of the record in the family bible of Daniel Doughty which 
is now in his possessian. 

The dates being given in " olde style" allowance must be 
made as follows: The year began the 25th March, which is called 
the first month, April the second month, and so on to the twelfth

EARLY NEW YORK CHURCH RECORDS. 



By Royden W. Vosburgh, of the Publication Committee. 



Since the announcement ntiade in the April issue of the Record, satis- 
factory progress has been made in the work of securing and transcribing early 
church records in Columbia County. A delay in completing the translation 
and comparison of the Taghkanick (now West Copake) church record was 
caused by the sudden death of Mr. Walter K. Griffin, on April 17th, to whom, 
by his energy and unfailing patience this Society is indebted for the revival of 
interest in collecting church records. The greater part of the Dutch in the 
Taghkanick record was translated by Mr. Griffln, and he had finished about 
one-third of the comparison and checking. I have completed this work and 



288 Early New York Church Records. [July. 

have prepared the introduction, with notes of criticism. The editorial matter 
and translation of the Churchtown record, by the courtesy of the Holland So- 
ciety of New York, was undertaken by Mr. L. P. de Boer, their Librarian. 

Through the interest and assistance of the church authorities, and as the 
result of a trip through Columbia County in the early part of May, we have 
obtained for the Society for the purpose of copying and translating, the records 
of the Lutheran churches at Germantown and Manorton (Tar Bush). The 
record of the Lutheran Church at Ghent has been examined, and with the ex- 
ceinion of the church at Ancram, I believe that this completes the early 
Lutheran records in Columbia County, but any additional information will be 
gratefully received. A copy of the record of the Hillsdale (Nobletown) Re- 
formed Dutch Church, also known as the Krum Church, recently made by the 
Holland Society, may also be safely said to complete the work of copying, so 
far as it relates to the churches of the Reformed Dutch denomination in that 
county. While some of the records heretofore copied, from fifteen to twenty- 
five years ago, have been but partially and imperfectly made, it has been 
thought wise to leave Columbia County for the present, and to turn to other 
fields, where no copies have been made and where the originals are in danger 
of destruction. 

Accordingly, I have made a preliminary investigation in the Mohawk 
valley, in the Counties of Montgomery, Fulton and Herkimer. The following 
towns were visited: Broadalbin, Mayfield, Johnstown, Fonda, Root, Minden.St. 
Johnsville, Little Falls, Manheim, Mohawk and Herkimer. About ten church 
records were examined. The field is a large one, and on account of the large 
territory covered, a thorough examination in any one locality was impossible. 
The object of the preliminary investigation was to get a general idea of the 
material at hand and to select a point for a more extended and thorough ex- 
amination, to be commenced in the fall of this year. While a few of the 
earliest church records have already been copied, it is certain that many 
records exist, commencing shortly after the revolutionary period, that have 
never before been brought to light. The earliest uncopied record that came 
to my notice commences in 1763, and its immediate preservation is a matter of 
urgent necessity. With the limited means that this Society has at its disposal 
for this purpose, the work must of course be accomplished only very slowly. 
The starting point will be to some extent influenced by the degree of interest 
and co-operation manifested by the church authorities. It is hoped to copy all 
the records in a given locality before leaving it, but if this plan is not feasible 
the records already promised by the church authorities will be copied first. 
Reference is made to the Official Announcement in the April issue of the 
Record, and the church authorities are urged to avail themselves of this op- 
portunity of preserving for all time the records of our fore-fathers. 

I am indebted among others, to members of the Herkimer Historical 
Society, to County officials and to the local press for valuable assistance and 
hearty co-operation in my investigation. A more detailed description of the 
records secured will be given hereafter, and when the work of copying and 
translating is under way. Suffice it to say for the present, that the Society 
wishes it to be known that the Mohawk valley and the adjacent territory is its 
next field for investigation, and that it is hoped to continue the work there 
until the field is exhausted. The church authorities should remember that a 
copy and translation, such as the Society is prepared to give them, is one that 
could not ordinarily be obtained without considerable expense.

CORRECTIONS. 



In April, 1912, Record, page 122, 2nd line from bottom, Serena should 
read Sereno; page 127, 7th line from top, Royalist should read Loyalist. In 
January, 1912, Record, page 104, i6th line from bottom, " Genealogist," Nova 
Scotia, should read London Genealogist, N. S. (New Series), 



QUERIES. 

Brinkerhoff— In Vols. 37-38 of Record it is stated that Joris Brincker- 
hoff married Annetie, daughter of Teunis Jans Coevers who died June 11, 1750, 
and had Hans, Lucas, Marrits, Maritje, Aellie, Sarah, Annetie. In the Bri?ick- 
erhoff Gcneaioo^y, published by Richard Brinkerhoff in 1887, P- 76, it is stated 
that the wife of Joris was Annetie, dau. of Teunis Gysbert Bogaert, with the 
same date for her death. The children given are: Sarah, Susannah, Abraham, 
Teunis, Isaac, Aellie, Joris, Neeltie, Hendrick, Antie. So far as 1 can see the 
known facts favor the latter statement, but perhaps this has all been worked 
out by some one, and if so I should be glad to be set right. 

Rapalje— In the Rapalje line as usually given there appears to be a gen- 
eration skipped and I have never seen any comment upon this fact, although I 
have seen it bridged in an extraordinary way by the insertion of the marriage 
of Breckje, daughter of Gaspard Colet de Rapalje to Victor Honorious Janssen. 
As given it makes Abram born in 1569 the son of Gaspard Colet born 1505. 
Can any one give the missing link ? 

HENRY WYCKOFF BELKNAP, 31 Warren St., Salem, Mass. 
Vermilye— Taylor— Montgomery— William, son of John and Gerritie, 
or Charity (Dyckman) Vermilye, who d. 1822, aged about 74, mar. in 1773, 
Maria Brower; 2nd Mary Taylor, who died in 1835, age 81. Wanted the mar- 
■ riage date of the said Mary Taylor, the name and residence of her father, his 
immigrant ancestors to America, and the maiden name of his wife. Similar facts 
are also desired for Mary Montgomery, who married William W. Vermilye, son 
of William and Mary (Taylor) Vermilye, about 1800. William and Mary 
(Taylor) Vermilye, Wm. W. and Mary (Montgomery) Vermilye were all 
originally interred in the little burial plot at Kingsbridge. When, and to 
what place, were they removed ? 

Claessen — Valencyn or Valentine Claessen, from Transylvania, early at 
Harlem, N. Y., later at Fordham, married in 1662, as per the N. V. Dutch Ch. 
Rec, Marritie Jacobs from Beest, Gelderland. Riker says he won his laurels in 
an expedition to Esopus, 1660, and that he was ancestor of the Westchester 
Valentine family. Wanted the proof of his military service, and of his being 
ancestor to the Valentines of Westchester.

BOOK NOTICES. 



Editorial Note:— The New York Genealogical and Bio^jraphical Society solicits as 
donations to its Library all newly published works on Genealogy, History and Biography, as well 
as all works on Town, County and State History, or works embodying information regarding the 
Vital Records of any and all localities. It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections 
of its library any and all manuscript compilations which bear upon the above ineiitiont'd topics. 

In consideration of such donations the works so presented to the Society will beat once 
placed upon the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The 
New Yokk Genkalogical and Biographical Record, each donation of such character, 
whether in printed or manuscript form, will be reviewed under the head of "Book Notices" and 
a copy of The fiKCORD containing the review will be sent to the donor. 

The Society does «o< solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to 
the above mentioned subjects, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material 
which does not bear directly upon its recognized sphere of usefulness. 

Donations for review in the January issue of The Record should be delivered to the 
Society before December 1st of the previous year; for the April issue, before March ist; for the 
July issue before June ist; and for the October issue, before September ist. 

All donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public 
to their good points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the 
interest of the genealogical student would expect from the editorial staff of The R.ecokd. 

The "Book Notices" of The Record are carefully read by all librarians as well as 
genealogical students, and the review of a work in The Record is equivalent to a special 
advertisi.'ment of such work. . , , , 

Letters of transmittal of donations of such works should embody the price of the work 
donated and the name and address of the person from whom it can be purchased.

sented in a new light and some of the traditions relating thereto are very much 
shattered. 

This work as a town history is representative in character and embodies 
within its limits all of the information so much desired by genealogical 
searchers. It is to be hoped that others contemplating the pul()lication of town 
histories may use it as an example of painstaking and exhaustive work. All 
libraries should have it on their shelves. 

Archives of the General Convention (of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in U. S. A.). Edited, by order of the Commission on Archives, by 
Arthur Lowndes, D. D.. Vol. III. Correspondence of John Henry Hobart, 
1802-Sept., 1804, cloth, quarto, pp. 604, including index. Printed at the 
Merrymount Press, Boston, by D. B.Updike. 

We are pleased to receive these archives. All three volumes are valuable 
historically and worthy of the great church the records of which are exemplified 
therein. In the present book the correspondence of Bishop Hobart is continued. 
An alphabetical index to these letters, a list of annotations and of books re- 
ferred to are appended. 

The Ancestry and Descendants of Gustavus Beall and Thomas 
Hugh Beall. By Josiah H. Shinn of Washington, D. C. Pamphlet, pp. 28. 

This publication presents the argument made in October, 1911, before the 
Registrar of the Daughters of the American Revolution by Mr. Shinn, in 
order that one of Gustavus Beall's descendants might be eligible thereto. 
That the proof was successful makes the genealogy of interest to students.

Index of the Genealogical and Historical Queries and 
Answers from the New York Mail and Express, Vol. I. By Miss 
Mary E. Sinnott, 1816 South Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Cloth, quarto, 
pp. 113. Privately printed 1911. 

Most genealogical students either knew Mrs. Annie Arnoux Haxtun or had 
had communication with her through the department which she conducted 
until her death in the above mentioned newspaper. She pasted the clippings 
in three large scrapbooks and presented them to the Genealogical Society of 
Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia. Miss Sinnott has made a valuable addition to 
genealogical lore in making these extracts accessible to the public in this 
fashion. The index is printed as Mrs. Haxtun arranged it. 

A Century of Achievement, The History of the N. Y. Bible 
Society for One Hundred Years. By Rev. Dr. Arthur Lowndes, Vols. I 
and II, quarto, pp. i r 12, covering the years 1898-1909 inclusive. 

These volumes are pleasing accounts of the vicissitudes of the century's life 
of this well known and beneficient organization. Volume I is adorned with 
portraits of Bishop Hobart, Matthew Clarkson, elected a Manager of the 
Society in 181 5, the Rev. Henry Hadley Norris of England and the Rev. Dr. 
Benjamin I. Haight, 2nd Vice-President. In Volume II are found portraits of 
Charles Henry Contoit, Rev. John McVickar, Thomas C. Butler, for many 
years treasurer and Agent of the Society, and James Pott, who succeeded to 
these offices. The work is well performed and is agreeable to the eye. A short 
but inclusive index closes the story.

Edition limited to 350 copies. Published for the Society by Frederick H. 
Hitchcock, N. Y., 1912. 



2o6 Book Notices. [JuIYp 

We agree with the Committee of Publication that these letters are worthy 
to be placed in enduring form. The work has been done, too, in a faultless 
manner, and the notes, which enrich the text, add very largely to the value of 
the volume. 

One of the original purchasers of Newtown, *Long Island, where he came 
in 1656, was Joiin Furman. His ancestors were of Stoke Nayland, Suffolk, 
England. Josias, his son, married Sarah Strickland and held some local offices 
in Newtown. Samuel, one of their sons, removed to Hopewell Tosvnship, 
New Jersey, and it was his son Jonathan who became the father of the writer 
of these letters, which begin in 1779. They treat the early years of the Re- 
public in a vivid, personal way, and we can endorse this quotation from the 
foreword of the book: " They show how desperate the struggle was to finance 
the armies of the revolting Colonies; they show how conscientious the men 
were who assumed this task and what an important factor they were in the 
ultimate success of their cause." A few letters by other hands are added to 
lend further significance to the circumstances related in the letters themselves. 

Sixteenth Annual Report, iqii.of the American Scenic and 
Historic Preservation Society, to the Legislature of the State of New 
York. Printed by J. B Lyon Company, State Printers, Albany, N. Y. 

This impressive volume is so compendius, so rich in interesting informa- 
tion on a multitude of subjects, and so valuable for reference that it confounds 
those short-sighted individuals whose province in life seems to be to inveigh 
against all organizations which do not just fit into their narrow idea of what is 
worth preservation. And withal the reading of the context is interesting in 
itself. The record of the work done alone justifies the existence of the 
Society. Not only does it include local information but objects having a 
world-wide import. The inclusion of biographies of noted Americans makes the 
work especially of value to genealogical and historical societies. The volume is 
embellished with unusually beautiful views, and taken all in all, every one 
concerned in its production is to be commended for the care and thoroughness 
displayed in its attractive pages. A voluminous index is fittingly added. 

Quartermaster George Colton and his Descendants, 1644-1911. 
Compiled by George Woolworth Colton. Printed for private circulation by 
John Milton Colton, Philadelphia, 1912. Octavo, cloth, ill., pp. 588. 

The above is an admirable genealogy, modern and scientific in every re- 
spect. The ancestor was a public spirited and notable citizen of Longmeadow, 
Springfield, Massachusetts. 

Class of 1870, Yale College, 1870-1911. Quarto, cloth, ill., pp. 403. 
Compiled by Lewis Wilder Hicks, Class Secretary. Boston, Thomas Todd 
Company. 

The Yale blue and the good Yale seal prepare the reviewer for the pleas- 
ant task of reading the life stories of the members of Yale, '70. The trail leads 
back to the wmd-swept hill of Phillips Andover, where so many of the class 
prepared for Yale. The two pictures of each graduate, one taken in college, 
and the other late in life, show in turn the features of well-bred boys and 
mature gentlemen. These are good faces which we see in this book, pure, in- 
tellectual, virile, American. The gamut of human experience is found in 
these pages, tantalizing ill-health, early death, mediocrity and brilliant success. 
It is in some ways a sad task to read this volume, so many of the boys of '70 
have gone before. Honor to the Class of '70 and to its alma mater. 

Ruggles Homesteads. By Henry Stoddard Ruggles. Quarto, cloth, 
ill., pp. 12. 

The pictures of the homes of members of the Ruggles family range from 
"the stately homes of Merrie England," to splendid colonial mansions in 
Massachusetts, and include even residences of to-day of a very modern type. 

The Autobiography of Thomas Collier Platt. Compiled and 
edited by Louis J. Lang. Octavo, cloth, ill., pp. 556. 

The memory of Thomas Platt is still fresh in our minds as we read this 
autobiography. In his lifetime there were wide divergences in popular judg- 



I9I2.] Accessions to the Library. ^07 

ment about him. One man would consider Mr. Piatt as the last word in 
political trickery and vileness, while his neighbor would term him a states- 
man. Any criticism of Mr. Piatt as self revealed in this book will encounter 
the same difference of opinion. 

At any rate a few salient facts occur to the reviewer. The book is not 
equal in construction to such autobiographies as those of Senator Hoar of 
Massachusetts, General Sherman or Grant. It is frankly a compilation. 
There is a great deal of material in it which throws a bright light on Senator 
Piatt's life, but the material is thrown together too roughly for the finest re- 
sults. Yet the prime object of the book is thoroughly accomplished. The life 
of the famous political leader is laid bare for the reader without hypocrisy or 
pretence. There is your Senator Piatt mirrored to the life. 

As to the value of that life we may say that it was sturdy, strong, able, 
adroit and successful. Had there been a little more of the moral and ethical 
element in it, it would have been great. It is certainly more true to-day than 
ever before that a man must be more than able and adroit to be long remem- 
bered with affection by the American people. We predict that the next gen- 
eration will have to delve deeply into the libraries to find out who Thomas 
Collier Piatt was. 

QUINDECENNIAL RECORD OF THE CLASS OF 1895, SHEFFIELD 

Scientific School of Yale University. Compiled by William Usher 
Parsons, Class Secretary. Yale University Press, 191 2, octavo, cloth, ill., pp. 237. 
In perusing this well-appointed book we realize the task imposed upon 
Class Secretaries of this day in getting out these Class Reports. Of the ut- 
most interest to the members of the Class, they are not much less so to many 
outsiders. This Society welcomes into its library these condensed biographies 
of Sheff. 'q5. 

History and Genealogy of the Family of Hurd in the United 
States and a Partial History of the New England Families of Heard and Hord, 
including a treatise on Nomenclature, Heraldry, and Coat Armor and Ancestry. 
By Dena D. Hurd. Quarto, pp. viii x 339. Privately printed. New York, 1910. 

The work is made up of four books in one volume, with index, and has 
about 150 illustrations. 

The Book I, contains a rare Treatise on Nomenclature (the origin of fam- 
ily names), dealing with the changes of spelling and the original meaning of 
the name; a valuable Treatise on Heraldry and Coat Armor explains fully the 
real meaning and significance of Family Crests and Arms, illustrated with 
Arms in their original colors. 

The Book II is a full and complete History and Genealogy of the Family 
of Hurd, the origin of the name, with the Crest and Coat-of-Arms in their origi- 
nal colors, with a full explanation of their meaning. 

The Book III is a History and Genealogy of the Family of Hord, the ori- 
gin and meaning of the name, with the Crest and Coat-of-Arms in the original 
colors as in Book II. 

The Book IV is a History and Genealogy of the Family of Heard, the 
origin of the name, the Family Crest and Coat-of-Arms in the original colors.

WILIvIAM WATTS SHERMAN 



By Capt. Richard Henry Greene. 



William Watts Sherman was born at Albany, N. Y., Aug. 4, 
1842; he was son of Watts Sherman, born Feb. 22, 1809, and died 
Feb. 20, 1865, in the Island of Madeira. Watts Sherman's first 
wife was Lois Sarah Turner, who died in Albany, Aug. 4, 1838, in 
her 21st year. His children were all of the second wife, Sarah 
Maria Gibson, whom he married Feb. 2, 1841. She was born Feb. 
8, 1816, and died Mar. 10, 1878, the daughter of Henry Bicker 
Gibson (1783-1863) and Sarah Sherman, his wife, who was daughter 
of Watts Sherman and Olivia Gillson, born in Utica, N. Y., Sept. 
15, 1796; married Dec. 9, 1812. He was born in Reading, Pa., 
April 13, 1783; his father removed to Saratoga, N. Y., and he to 
Utica, N. Y., in 1805. 

The maternal ancestry is as follows: John Gibson (1757-1818) 
married Katherine Bicker; Henry Bicker, born 1722, married 
Sophia Heyer; Victor Bicker, Jr., born 1688, married Annatje 
Cregier; Victor Bicker, born 1652, married Claasje Blanck; Gerrit 
Bicker, born 1629, married Aaltje L,ubbertse. 

The paternal line descends from Philip Shearman, who came to 
Roxbury, Mass., in 1633, a single man, made freeman, 1634, 
married Sarah Odding. He was born in Dedham, Eng., it is said, 
Feb. 5, 1610. He was among the followers of Ann Hutchinson 
and was banished from the Colony, Oct. 2, 1637. The family 
emigrated to Rhode Island, bought land from the Indians at 
Aquetnet, and government was set up with Coddington for 
governor, and Shearman for secretary, this was at Portsmouth, R.I. 

Soon after he left the Congregational Church and united with 
the Society of Friends. His son, Eber^ Shearman, was born in 
Roxbury, 1634; he settled on the west side of Narragansett Bay 
at North Kingston. His wife's name was Mary; he died in 1706. 
His eldest son was also Eber^ Shearman, married Martha Rem- 
mington; they lived at North Kingston. Henry^ Shearman, his 
youngest child, was born Jan. 14, 1724, married Anna, daughter 
22 



310 Williavi Watts Sherman. • [Oct., 

o^f Dr. Charles Hig-ginbotham in 1747; they resided in South

Baptist clergyman. They had two sons: Henry, "^ married Sarah 
Mitchell of Hudson, N. Y., and Watts," born July 2, 1775, mar- 
ried Olivia Gillson, June 12, 1794. These brothers were each in 
the ancestry of William Watts Sherman, thus: Henry's youngest 
son was Watts^ (William Watts' father) and the brother Watts^ 
had an eldest child, Sarah^ Sherman, who married Henry B. Gibson, 
Dec. 9, 1812, and their second child Sarah Maria*^ Gibson, married 
Watts Sherman, above. This man was teller of the Ontario 
County Bank, Canandaigua, N. Y., and later cashier of the 
Livingston County Bank, Genesee, N. Y. In 1833 he became 
cashier^ of the Herkimer County Bank at Uttle Falls, N. Y. In 
1834 Erastus Corning was president of this bank and moved to 
Albany, N. Y., where Corning became president of the Albany 
City Bank and Sherman was made cashier. Mr. Sherman was a 
democrat and nominated for Alderman in 1845 and '46, but the 
whigs were successful in these elections. 

In 1851 he came to New York and became a partner in the 
firm of Duncan, Sherman & Co., bankers. He lived at 5th avenue, 
corner 22d street until he died Feb. 20, 1865, while at the Island 
of Madeira, W. I. They were a generous couple, full of kind- 
liness and charity, which the widow continued until her death,

1863; died May 10, 1900. iii. Sophia Augusta Brown, born April 
21, 1867. 

The financial assistance furnished by this family, many years 
ago, was recognized by the adoption of the name for the college at 
Providence, R. I., as Brown University, one of the earliest and 
more distinguished of the colleges of this country. 

The New York home of William Watts Sherman was at 838 Fifth 
avenue, and the summer home was on Shepard avenue, Newport, 
R. I. He had four children, two by each marriage, as follows:

Park Commission of Newport. 



312 The Doughty Fafuily of Long Island. [Oct., 

Mr. Sherman died at his home in New York, Jan. 23, 1912.

Newport, where his kindly disposition and generous helpfulness 
made hosts of friends, who will miss him i(n the various association

58. Daniel Doughty (son of Jacob Doughty and Amy Whitehead), 
born at Cow Neck, Hempstead, Queens County, New York, 17th 
of loth month, 1703 (corresponding exactly to December 28, 
1703). married (i) in Burlington County, New Jei-feey, 1729-30, Ann 
Stevenson, born in Burlington County, New Jerse)', about 17 10 
(daughter of John Stevenson and Mercy Jennings); she d. 24th of 
7th month, 1742; he married (2) Mrs. Edith Coate NeWbold 
(daughter of Marmaduke Coate and widow of Thomas Newbold 
of Springfield, Burlington County, New Jersey). She had no 
issue by this marriage, but had a son William Newbold of 
Chesterfield, New Jersey. Mrs. Ann Stevenson Doty was a 
granddaughter of Samuel Jennings, the first Governor of the 
Province of West New Jersey. 

1735-7-9, Daniel Doughty was a Justice of the town of Bethle- 
hem, Hunterden County, New Jersey. 1744, he was Member of 
Assembly for Hunterden County. 1761, he was Member for 
Burlington County. 1750, he purchased from Charles Read, 
Secretary of the Province of West Jersey, a valuable Plantation 
in the township of Springfield to which Read had given the 
name of " Sharon." Upon the death of Daniel Doughty he gave 
" Sharon" by will to his grandson, Daniel Doughty Smith, whose 
grandson Barclay White now owns the property. 1752, April 28, 
Daniel Doughty of Burlington County, New Jersey, conveyed to 
five trustees a plot of land, which they at once conveyed to the 
Monthly Meeting of Quakers at Kingwood; and in 1764 he con- 
veyed another plot in the same way to the same Meeting. 

Daniel Doughty died 1778 and he was the first interred in the 
burial-ground adjoining Friends' Meeting house at " The 
Mount." A stone meeting house had been constructed upon the 
brow of a hill about one mile from Sharon; the graveyard was 
not enclosed at the time of his burial, and a temporary fence 
was constructed around his grave. Children (births being given

Mary Doughty, (No. 78), born (daughter of Elias Doughty 

and Mary Ismond). She died . He married (2) Elizabeth 

Doughty. They lived in Brooklyn, New York, where he was a 
prominent Attorney and member of the Colonial Assembly 
1787. Doughty Street in Brooklyn was named after him and he 
lived at the corner of Doughty and Furman Streets. 

In the Brookly7i Eag/e of ]nne 7, 1891, an"01d Brooklynite" 
gives some interesting items: 

" In the morning of Brooklyn's existence, when taxes were 
low, politicians were not, and population statistics represented 
by hundreds instead of hundreds of thousands, no street was 
better known than the now neglected byway behind the Eagle's 
back door. Time, the destroyer of all things, has reduced the 
prominence of Doughty Street, and from one of the thorough- 
fares of the village of Breucklyn it has become a byway of the 
great city of Brooklyn. But it has occurred to me that a retro- 
spective glance at the ancient alley and the family for whom it 
was named would not be amiss; a forgotten family so far as the 
average newspaper interviewer of the oldest inhabitant is con- 
cerned, but a family whose name will endure forever in the 
annals of Brooklyn as one of the first, if not the very first of 
of English birth. 

The Doughty family in America are all the descendants of 
one individual, the Rev. Francis Doughty, who emigrated from 
England and settled at Taunton, Mass., about the year 1633, 
which places him among the earliest of the Puritan fathers fol- 
lowing in the footsteps of the Mayflower pioneers. The Brooklyn 
Doughty family are the descendants of Elias, the second son of 
the Rev. Francis Doughty. Their first appearance in this city is 
believed to have been about the year 1690; there is, however, no 
absolute proof in the possession of the writer that this date is 
correct, although it cannot be more than a decade or so out of 
the way. 

Doughty street takes its name from Mr. Charles Doughty, for 
many years the most prominent attorney in the village of 
Brookyn, and a member of the Colonial Assembly as early as 
1787. In fact we feel safe in asserting that Mr. Doughty was the 
first Brooklynite in the New York Assembly. We find mention 
of him in the journal of that body under the date of March 3, 
1787, when a petition relative to the coinage of copper for the 
State was referred to Mr. Brooks, Mr. Duboys, Mr. Doughty, Mr. 
E. Clark and Mr. Taylor. Mr. Doughty's residence was located 
on the south corner of Doughty and Furman Streets, directly 
opposite the house of Gabriel Furman. It has long since 
disappeared and has been so completely forgotten that we 



3 I 8 The Doughty Fa)nily of Long Island. [Oct., 

never even see it mentioned in local annals. It is believed by 
the writer that Mr. Doughty was the owner of the street which 
bears his name. 

The old Brooklyn records are full o^ the Doughtys, and yet, 
strangely enough, they are never mentioned in newspaper 
articles, although equally prominent in their day with the 
Bergens, Remsens, Boerums, Johnsons and Rapelyes. The rea- 
sons for this are easily explained. The Doughtys were never a 
popular family. Tall and stout, with red hair and large features, 
the men of this race have ever been noted for hard headed ob- 
stinacy, great self confidence, large intelligence and a disposition 
to express themselves freely at all times, in season and out. An- 
other personal peculiarity of the family is in their walk. The 
Doughtys never bend their knee, but always walk stiff legged, 
like a pacing horse. No criminal or betrayer of trusts, public or 
private, has ever been known to bear the name of Doughty, 
which, let it be understood, has no connection whatever with the 
English ' Doty' or the Irish ' Dougherty' or ' Doherty.' As 
Doughty is spelled now so it has been spelled continuously since 
the days of Henry VIII. Of Charles Doughty, for whom the 
street was named, it is stated that he was about 85 when he died, 
previous to 1820, and that he used to often tell how, when a 
young man, he had been told by old people that they recollected 
when an Indian squaw waded from Governor's Island to Long 
Island with her papoose." 

He died aged 85 years, probably about 1813. Children by

Submissively to God, 
In hopes to meet a Heavenly train 
In my Redeemer's blood."

of salt works and wind-mills. He was on the committee for draw- 
ing up the new State Constitution in 1776, he being then of Yar- 
mouth. He lived in Yarmouth, at the foot of Church Street, until 
about a year after his son Laban*^ Thacher removed to South Dart- 
mouth. His son Laban bought him a farm in South Dartmouth 
and he removed thereto. Davis^ Thacher (his grandson) says 
that he was a house carpenter, and was chosen a deacon when he 
was 80 years old. Mrs. Sally'' (Hawes) Cobb, his grand-daughter, 
states that he was a deacon in 1819. Antony^ Thacher, his grand- 
son, states that he built boats of a kind called "Moses" boats ; and 
that afterwards he built small fishing and coasting vessels. He 
owned a sloop of 10 or 15 tons burden that plied between Yarmouth 
and Boston ; and also sailed on a sloop of his own building to 
Labrador, but was probably not the master thereof. He built many 
wind-mills and also built the first light-house on the back of Cape 
Cod, it being constructed of wood. He is said to have built the 
wind-mill that formerly stood on the northeast corner of the Yar- 
mouth Academy and which was subsequently on the hill east of 
the Congregational Meeting House- This wind-mill was moved 
to near the site of Charles Sears' house. He is said to have been 
the inventor of the improvements in salt work implements which 
were made use of by the Acme Salt Works. His ship yard was 
on Green Hill. Both Mrs. Sally Cobb and Warren'' Thacher (his 
grand-children) were in possession of miniature portraits of Wil- 
liam-'"' Thacher, which were the only portraits of any of this line of 
Thacher's from the first to the fifth generation. Both William' 
Thacher and his wife were dismissed from church in Yarmouth to 
that of Dartmouth in 1807.

at Medway, Mass.; he lived at Medway, Mass., 
Ward and Harvard, Mass. He died at Milton, 
Mass., previous to November 2i.st, 1797, and was 
buried at Harvard, Mass. He was a son of Rev. 
David and Susannah Waters (Fairbanks) Thurs- 
ton of Medway, Mass. 

Children: 3 (Thurston), 2 sons and i daughter.

died March 15th, 1857; married Benjamin 
Putnam of Sutton, Alass., on August 25th, 
1812, and settled in East Eddington, Mass. 
Paul Thurston lived in Ward, Mass., and 

Harvard, Mass., but he apparently died in Milton, 
Mass., as his widow, who was his administratrix, 
asked for an allowance for transporting the de- 
ceased from Milton to Harvard. In 1795 or 1796 
he lived on Deer Island, Maine. 

Rev. Grindal Rawson succeeded Air. Smith as pastor at Yar-

and was the eldest son of Pelatiah Rawson of Milton, Mass. He 
graduated Harvard College 1741, and was installed as first pastor 
of Ware, Mass., May 9th, 1751, and was dismissed of his charge 
there June 19th, 1754; he took his dismission from Yarmouth 
Church in 1 760, "in consequence" — as Mr. Alden said — "of general 
dissatisfaction between him and the people, being allowed by a 
council to ask for a dissolution of connexion." He is represented 
as having been a man of strong mind but very eccentric.

Rev. Peter^), born Yarmouth, February 17th, 1733; died , 

at . From Vol. XV, p. 507, of Mass. Soldiers and Sailors 

in Rev. War, I obtain the following record of an Ebenezer 
Thatcher, which it is highly probable is the record of this 
Ebenezer^ Thacher, viz : — 

"Thatcher, Ebenezer, Yarmouth, Private, Captain Joshua 
Gray's Co., enlisted July loth, 1775; discharged December 31st, 
1775, service in defence of sea coast; rolls sworn to in Barnstable 
Co. ; also, return of men raised to serve in the Continental Army 
from Colonel Nathaniel Freeman's (ist Barnstable County) Regi- 
ment, residence Yarmouth, enlisted for town of Yarmouth; joined 
Captain Lamont's Co., Col. Bradford's regiment, enlistment 3 years; 
also list of men mustered by Joseph Otis, Muster Master for Barn- 
stable Co., dated April 14th, 1777, Capt. James Davis' Co., Col. 
Gamaliel Bradford's regiment; mustered April 14, 1777; enlist- 
ment 3 years ; reputed received State and Continental Bounties ; 
also Sergeant 5th Co. Col. Bradford's Regt., Continental pay ac- 
counts for service from April 14, 1777, to December 31, 1779; also, 
Captain John Lamont's Co. Col. Bradford's (12th) Regt., return 
(year not given) ; mustered by County and Continental Muster 
Masters; joined May ist, 1777; also Captain Haskell's Co., Col. 
Bradford's Regiment, Continental Army, pay accounts for service 
January ist, 1780, to April 14, 1780 (see Obed Ilaebe) ; also Cap- 
tain Micah Hamlen's Co., Lieut. Col. Hallet's Regt., entered ser- 
vice August 14th, 1780, 3 days preceding march; discharged Oc- 
tober 31st, 1780; service 2 months, 21 days at Rhode Island; regi- 
ment detached from Militia to reinforce Continental Army for 3 
months." This record is apparently that of the Ebenezer'* Thacher 
No. 158; and that it is so is rendered still more probable as a com- 
parison of this record with that of Joseph"^ Thacher (his brother, 
No. 160), it is seen that this Ebenezer Thatcher and Joseph^ 
Thacher both served in the same Company and Regiment (La- 
mont's Co. and Bradford's Regt.) and both were from Yarmouth. 
The subsequent career of Ebenezer' Thacher I have been unable to 
trace; whether he married and left issue, or whether he died single, 
is unknown to me.

He was not married. 

From Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in War of Rev., Vol. XV, 
p. 508, we obtain the following record of the Military Service of 
Joseph" Thacher, viz : — 

"Thatcher, Joseph, Yarmouth — Return of men raised to serve 
in Continental Army from Col. Nathaniel Freeman's (ist Barn- 
stable County) regiment, dated Sandwich, June 10, 1777; resi- 
dence Yarmouth ; enlisted for town of Yarmouth ; joined Capt. 
Lamont's Co., Col. Bradford's regt., enlistment 3 years; also pri- 
vate, 5th Co., Col. Bradford's Regt. ; Continental Army pay ac- 
counts for service from May 16, 1777, to October i6th, 1778; 
residence Yarmouth; credited to town of Yarmouth; reputed de- 
ceased ; also Captain John Lamont's Co., Col. Gamaliel Bradford's 
(i2th) regiment; subsistence allowed from date of enlistment, 
May 12, 1777, to May 27, 1777; credited with 15 days' allowance; 
also, same Co. and Regt. ; return (year not given) ; mustered by 
County and Continental Muster Masters; joined June 26th, 1777; 
reported sick at Kings Ferry." 

From an analysis of above record it would seem that the date 
of his death was either on or subsequent to October i6th, 1778, as 
he was allowed pay up to that date.

that he was born in either Yarmouth or Barnstable before 
his father settled in Harwich. He resided at Harwich in that 
part which is now known as Brewster; he was a mariner. 

He died , about 1775; he was living, as appears by his

Bristol, May 23rd, 1696, and was admitted to St. Michael's 
P. E. Church at Bristol, June 12th, 1726; he died at Surinam,

ried a second time at Bristol, August 29th, 1733; int. pub. Bristol,

; he died at Bristol, R. I., September nth, 1736, aged 76, and 

was probably buried there. He was a son of Nicholas and Sarah 
( ) Davis of Newport, R. I. Children: (Davis) None. 

Simeon Davis' first wife was Ann Low, wjiom he married at 
Bristol, R. I., September 29th, , 

Bethiah^ (Rowland) Bragg-Davis, widow of Simeon (or Si- 
mon) Davis, married a third time , 1741 (int. pub. Bristol, 

November 21st, 1741), at , to Daniel Greene (as his second 

wife), born February 20th, 1698-9, at Warwick, R. I.; he lived 
at Centerville, R. I., died at Centerville, November 24th, 1797 (or 
1798), aged nearly 100, and was buried there presumably. He 
was a son of Major Job and Phebe (Sayles) Green of War- 
wick, R. I. 

Child: I (Greene), daughter. 

619^ i. Deborah,^ born May 24th, 1745; died ; said

Daniel Greene married, first, November nth, 1731, by 
Simon Kay, to Temperance Harris of New Shoreham, R. I.; born 

; died March 28th, 1732-3, by whom he had one (Greene) 

daughter. Not in Thacher line, viz.: 

I. Temperance, born March 13th, 1732-3; died 
; married Captain Job Pierce. 

The intention of marriage of Bethiah Howland to Samuel 
Davis was published at Bristol, June 26th, 1724, but I have found 
no record of the marriage itself. The question naturally arises in 
view of the above record, what Bethiah Howland was this? There 
were at this time in Bristol but two (2) Bethiah Howlands, viz.: 
Bethiah^ (Thacher) Howland (No. 36), widow of Jabez^ How- 
land, son of John,^ and the above Bethiah^ Howland (Jabez* and 
Patience (Stafford) liowland). Bethiah^ (Thacher) Howland 
died at Bristol, R. I., December 19th, 1725, and it is barely pos- 
sible that in her widowhood she may have contemplated a second 
marriage with Samuel Davis. If such was the case I have no 
knowledge of the fact. 11 this above record was the intention of 
marriage of Bethiah'' Howland (Jabez*) then it would seem that 
the marriage itself was never solemnized, as Samuel Davis died 
March 23rd, 1732, and in the meantime she, Bethiah' Thacher, had 
on May 19th, 1725, married Nicholas Bragg. This Samuel Davis 
was as I make out the brother of Simeon Davis, her second hus- 
band, and was born June 30th, 1698, at Bristol.

i86. MiiRCY^ (or Mary'*) Rowland (Jabez* Rowland, Bethiah^ 
Thacher, Antony ,2 Rev. Peter^), born Bristol, R. L, January 

27th, 1704; died , at . She married, first, at Bristol, 

R. I., by Rev. James Orem, on November 22nd, 1722 (int. 
pub. August 25th, 1722), to Captain George Pearse (Pearce 
or Pierce), of whose individual record I am uninformed. In 
the record of her marriage to Captain Pearse she is styled 
"Mrs." She married, second, at Bristol by the Rev. John 
Usher, on July 9th, 1724, to Isaac Martindale of Newport, 
R. I., of whose record I am uninformed. Whether any 
children were born to Mercy Rowland by these two mar- 
riages I do not know. 
In Vol. VI of Vital Records of R. I., pp. 27 and 53, we have 
the record that a Mercy Plowland of Bristol and Joseph Tilling- 
hast, Jr., of Tiverton, were married at Bristol, August 6th, 1722. 
I do not know who this Mercy Rowland was unless she was the 
above Mercy'* Rowland, or possibly Yetmercy (Shove) Rowland, 
widow of Josiah^ Rowland. If the record refers to the above 
Mercy^ Rowland, then she married Joseph Tillinghast, Jr., August 
6th, 1722, and on August 25th of same year her intention to 
marry Captain George Pearse was published and she married 
Captain Pearse on November 22nd of that same year, 1722. This 
is not impossible, but highly improbable, except as the result of 
some family tragedy or romance with which I am not familiar. 

If, however, it refers to the possible marriage of the widow 
of Josiah^ Rowland to Joseph Tillinghast, there is nothing in the 
record inconsistent with the record of Josiah* Rowland, as he died 
at Bristol, February 8th, 1717, and his widow may possibly have 
married a second time August 6th, 1722, to Joseph Tillinghast, 
Jr. ; however, if she did so I am not positively so informed. I 
give the record of this marriage of IMercy Rowland and Joseph 
Tillinghast and my analysis thereof for what it is worth, with no 
pretense of suggestion as to its value.

Pa., and his Sister, Jeannet Ramsey, who married

Franklin County, Pa. 



By Orra Eugene Monnette. 



Introductory Note.— The purposes of this pamphlet are 
two-fold; primarily, to stimulate both interest and research in 
the Ramsey ancestry, and secondarily, to correct certain genea- 
logical errors, as the writer firmly believes, which have been 
stated, re-stated and reiterated for several years.

and Belknap Galleries, 1904, 40th St., N. Y. 

William and Mary College Quarterly, (Vol. 3, p. 168) contains 
very positive support of the foregoing, under the title "Coat of 
Arms in Virginia:" 

"The wax seal attached to the original will of Dr. George 
Ramsey, in Norfolk County Clerk's office : An eagle displayed, 
beaked and membered; Crest, a unicorn's head couped. These 
arms correspond to those in Burke of the Earl of Dalhousie and 
the Ramseys of Croughton House, Brackley, Southampton. Dr. 
Ramsey, in his will, dated June 22, 1756, devised his property to 
his wife Sarah, and to his sons, John and James Ramsey." 
Cumberland and Franklin Counties, Pa. 

Cumberland County was organized about 1750 and Franklin 
County about 1784; Hamilton Township originally in Cumber- 
land, then in Franklin County, was created about 1752. 

The method of identifying genealogically, any one of a line- 
age is usually referable to land ownership and taxation returns, 
particularly in the State of Pennsylvania, and these should be 
viewed in the light of the fact that not always did the person 
live upon the land granted him or returned for taxation, and its 
location in one township and county in one year, may have been

relatively different as to township and county in another year, on 
account of the changes in township and county lines at different 
dates. This is a source of much confusion to one in a genealog- 
ical research. \
